Making lemonade

You’ve all heard the saying—what to do with lemons. Well, today, Life gave me a few juicy ones.

The company I work for has decided to crack down on personal internet usage. That’s understandable. Apparently, a number of people were IMing for hours at a time. What I found a little hard to swallow was an email I received this morning telling me that we’re not allowed to use the internet during lunch either. My beloved blogging hour! The only time (due to no internet at home) that I can spend reading all of your blogs and posting on my own.

I felt pretty discouraged. I thought, What can I do during lunch? I don’t go out to eat (what nearly everyone else does). What do I do for this hour that I’m stuck at work?

And then I remembered what I did about six months ago before the summer heat kicked in. I grabbed my iPod and went for a walk. I got to enjoy the sunshine, the butterflies, the birds chirping—things I’ve seen less of lately since I’ve been spent stuck to a computer screen during lunch. And I listened to a sermon about the life of Adoniram Judson, which made me realize the insignificance of my small difficulties.

So, dear readers, though I hope it will not be the case, I may be blogging a little less. But know that I am enjoying some sweet lemonade.
