Occasionally I find myself sitting alone and waiting for an appointment. And I usually find it to be an eye opening experience. There seems to be no limit to what people will say in public. Today for instance I had the opportunity to hear a young man laughingly proclaim, to his friends, how he set a ping pong table on fire up at the college.
Then a group of high school kids were bragging about skipping classes and sharing their grades with each other, and one girl was happy to proclaim she had all C's & D's. There was also one man talking to another man about a female acquaintance in such a way that it was clear to see he had no chivalry in him. There were numerous other things that are just to depressing to tell.

Every direction I go, there it is again, to the point I actually feel sick. It makes me want to run and hide away from it all.
And I do. I close my eyes, running to my Lord. My hiding place, my shelter, my comfort. The one that gives me peace in the midst of any storm. Thank you Lord that you are my refuge
Psa 61:2-3 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
