Perhaps an experiment

At Tea Talk we briefly share how we are feeling and what we are thinking.

I’m having bale coco milk tea in my Lang and Wise collector mug. It features “Family of Felines,” a painting by Lowell Herrero.

I’m feeling a bit anxious.

On my mind are the riots we had two weeks ago, and the meeting I am attending a few minutes from now. A major shake up at work is in the offing. The Ministry of Education is understandably not happy with the loss of control over erring students.  As my responsibilities do not extend beyond teaching duties, I am not directly involved in anything that happens outside the classroom. I will be affected by repercussions though. And that is what’s making me anxious.

Rumor has it the vice president for academic affairs is assigning me full-time courses in the university and I am saying goodbye to my job at the business institute. My question is will the price still be right? I am going to find out.

A friend’s Face book shout-out last night made me chuckle:

Money can’t buy happiness. But it is more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bike.

How true although I did not cry in a Mercedes. I just witnessed my ex in-laws arguing in a Mercedes.  That memory connects me to a possibility I am facing in the coming weeks: changes. I am not that keen on faith but I do believe it does wonders. It is perhaps time for me to have a little experiment with

Matthew 6:26 – Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

    Oh my. Your circumstances sound quite troubling.
    I pray for your safety, peace, and joy. And, actually, I like life better on a bike as you can travel into all the little nooks and crannies where the beauty of simplicity lies that you could never get to in a Mercedes. ::wink::

    I know what you mean by the wink 🙂 Thanks for the prayer. I appreciate it.

    Hi, Hazel, Sounds like a time of potential change in both our lives. It’s so hard! It is a great verse you chose to ponder. God is faithful. 🙂

    Will be thinking of you as you go about your new ‘worries’ with the meeting and the teaching staff at school. Loved your comment about money not buying happiness. So true.

    Hello my long lost friend, haha! I’m so glad to see you back at Tea Talk. You just made my day!
    You seem to have tough stuff to handle at work… I sense you are ready for the big move forward.

    You chose the right verse for you. I will also hang on to it as I have many reasons to start worrying here. But God is greater than our circumstances and He will not abandon His beloved children.

    Will be praying for you this week.

    Blessings!
