i think of things i really need to do...
ie. "I can't really clean the bathroom right now because I need to defuzz this cable-knit sweater from 1996."

On a separate note-were you in a certain OC Costco today? Because I got my cart stolen AGAIN!

There are plenty of things in this world that distract us from our mission, but there is also encouragement...

John 10:27:
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me."

Psalms 32:8
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye."

Stay focused, but enjoy the journey along the way!
