Reflecting Back to Menards

Written by evan on October 20, 2005 at 12:43 PM

We had a motto when i worked at menards during my college years, "people don't interrupt your job, they are the reason you have one."

god spoke this to me today. i planned on spending most of the day cleaning up and maintaining h2o after the plumbing issues, and needed to rearrange the gaming rooms to better suit the halo 2 addicts. once i got started on rewiring our under cabinet lights (which katie says i wired wrong the first time), a twentysomething student who is somewhat mentally challenged came him. he is very high maintance.

i thought to myself, great im not going to get anything done. i talked him into doing some cleanup for me, in exchange for a free soda (there has to be something wrong with this). it seemed like in no time he was done, and i had just started.i gave him a dew. he sat at the water bar. frustrated i tried to continue wiring.

he attends sunday morning services atleast twice a month, and has came to almost every concert we have done. he begin to ask me about drinking and god. he went on to explain that he believed in god, but thought it was ok to have a couple of drinks now and then. at the end of our conversation, he asked me to keep him in my prayers. that god would
help him with this this.

in the past week, i had all these scheduled times of ministry (what i thought was doing god's work), whether it be youth service, small groups, school lunch or whatever. and then out of the blue, unscheduled, is the time that i got to be the most successful at meeting somebody's need. go figure.

shot 66 (that was on 9 holes) at tuesday's staff golf outing.

watched fever pitch tonight.
