God of Second Chances

In yesterday's blog, I confessed how I didn't handle a situation very well.  You can read it here.

Guess what?  I had to go back to the store today.  Apparently, the product I purchased did not come with the correct parts.  I wasn't looking forward to this.  I promised myself again and again.  "I'm not going to lose it.  I'm not going to lose it."

I go to the front desk this time.  (Learned my lesson yesterday.)  I explain what the problem was.  They, in turn, start the same song and dance.  (Keep calm Russ, stay calm.  A kind word turns away anger.  A kind word turns away anger.)  I calmly said, "I honestly do not know what you are talking about, can you help me?"  This statement was met with a look of shock and confusion.  I'm thinking, "What did I just say?"  Then the kind employee explained to me how I had to set up this account online and that it was my responsibility to manage it.  (Keep calm Russ, keep calm.  A kind word turns away anger.  A kind word turns away anger.)  I pointed out to them that the tax exempt certificate was issued in March of 2012 and that was the last time I ever had a conversation with the store about this document.  The light bulb went on, and the employee knew what had happened.

After a few minutes of computer work and a few simple instructions, we were back in business.

Phil 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I praise you for every relationship, large or small, that I have.  May I enjoy every moment of this day.  AMEN
