A Closer Walk

Ever feel the need? The need to get down on your knees and pray?  California dreaming? Many years.  Many years…

“Sail along silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine all your dreams on their way. See how they shine. If you need a friend. I’m sailing right behind like a bridge over troubled water I will ease your mind. I’m on your side when times are rough. And friends just can’t be found. I will lay me down.”

“When you’re down and out. When you’re on the street. When evening falls so hard I will comfort you. I’ll take your heart, oh, when darkness comes. And pain is all around. I will lay me down. When you’re weary. Feeling small. When tears are in your eyes I will drive them all away.”  Etc.

So As I Have Seen Thee In The Sanctuary And Meditate On Thee In The Night Watches

Citrix has been acting up and the site keeps wanting to shut down but it only works for a few seconds and bounces back and we’re on again.  I can’t log off.  It won’t let me.  It’s like this thing has a natural life of its own, it just doesn’t want to go away, and I’ve no idea, but in reality it’s simply a help desk thing because my shift is done. Chad will follow up. Nobody said anything about overtime. My mistake was ticking “Remember Password.”  I want to be an author and commentator now.  It’s like “Experienced parking lot sweeper”. Something that looks great on your resume.

Plus it’s October Fest.  And the one thing that really goes with October Fest is Ocktoberfest Bier.  Brought to you once again by our friends at Paulaner

Don’t worry about the prompt are you old enough to be at the site, yes or no.  Nobody’s checking and you can lie your face off.

The perfection of this bier.  Just back from München and nothing’s changed. The screams of the tourists.  “Hofbräuhaus!  Hofbräuhaus!”

I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes Unto The Hills, From Whence Comes My Help. The Sun Shall Not By Day Nor The Moon By Night

It was that platter of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Greatest Hits” I saw in the dumpster that got me off on the wrong foot here.  I had to hear it.

It was never intended as a prayer stool as built but that in fact is exactly what it is, Mr. Unger.  Step up to the Lord and kneel in supplication if you must.  We call it the utility stool. It can’t just be about prayer.  You need more than that or you’re not well-rounded.
