Got another two feet of snow today so that is about 4 feet in a week. The power was off for 10 hours so I am thankful for the guys that were working in the snow storm to get the power back on, so I could get back on the Internet.

A Plea For Prayer

May 2, 2013

A missionary recently visited the Bible study I was attending. She described what it had been like to pack up her household, part with friends, and relocate to a distant country. When she and her family arrived, they were greeted with a flourishing drug-trade and hazardous roadways. The language barrier brought on bouts of loneliness. They contracted four different stomach viruses. And her oldest daughter narrowly escaped death after falling through a railing on an unsafe stairwell. They needed prayer.

The apostle Paul experienced danger and hardship as a missionary. He was imprisoned, shipwrecked, and beaten. It’s no surprise that his letters contained pleas for prayer. He asked the believers in Thessalonica to pray for success in spreading the gospel—that God’s Word would “run swiftly and be glorified” (2 Thess. 3:1) and that God would deliver him from “unreasonable and wicked men” (v.2). Paul knew he would need to “open [his] mouth boldly” and declare the gospel (Eph. 6:19), which was yet another prayer request.

Do you know people who need supernatural help as they spread the good news of Christ? Remember Paul’s appeal, “Brethren, pray for us” (2 Thess. 3:1), and intercede for them before the throne of our powerful God.

Commit to pray and intercede—
The battle’s strong and great’s the need;
And this one truth can’t be ignored:
Our only help comes from the Lord. —Sper
Intercede for others in prayer; God’s throne is always accessible.
Read: 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5
Brethren, pray for us. —2 Thessalonians 3:1
Bible in a Year:
1 Kings 12-13; Luke 22:1-20

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

Good evenin, Mac...*HUGS*...how was today’s commute? Hope better.

We all have to go downtown in the morning for the first training on the new system. The broken one is Cost Point 6...4 weeks now we have had to enter the payroll by hand, 8 employees at a time. Takes about 4 hours. 8 minutes when it works.

They are going to Cost Point 7 July 1st....we don’t hold out much hope that they even care about fixing our problem.

The morning commute was fairly smooth - door to door in under an hour. The evening commute was proceeding in starts and fits - I left the office at 7:15 and made it to the Maryland State Line at 8:02. Turning onto Colesville Road I was confronted with night-time road work that had 4 travel lanes down to one with no escape. I finally extricated myself and made my way home, but the damage had been done. An hour and forty-five minutes - I hit the door at 9:05 p.m.

The circle-**** at the office continues. We had to stand down for a half-hour or so because the wizards in IT had no documents batched up for us.

We picked back up at 5:00 p.m. and I proceeded to churn out docs for two hours. At about 6:50 p.m., ten minutes before I had to clock off (10.0 hr. max.), I was in the 302nd doc of a 304 doc batch when I saw that my doc was part of a 13 doc family of which only two were in my batch. In other words, they screwed up the batch and mingled it with docs from another batch.

The significance of this is that docs are supposed to be batched by families - that is, one doc, such as an email or letter with its attachments. This is because if one doc in a family is subject to Attorney-Client Privilege, all docs in the family must be coded as privileged and the entire family is then re-batched with other priv docs and assigned to a priv-team reviewer for further review. If the docs aren't batched correctly, privileged docs will be produced to the other side, and since we are in Federal Court, the rule is that if you release a doc that is privileged, you waive the privilege not only for that document, but for all other like documents and for the issue which is contained in those docs.

Very serious if you're facing indictment for securities fraud or some similar crime. Sorry to bore you with all this - you now know more about Attorney-Client Privilege that the high-paid Ivy League associates who putatively "supervise" us.

I'm feeling better now - a nice dinner with Mrs. MacNessa and a Robert Mondavi Cabernet have gone a long way to soothing the bete-sauvage in me!

Happy Beltaine!

Oh my goodness.....the right and left hands seem to be having issues. And their problem makes big issues for those doing the actual work.

Hope they have it “fixed” upon your return in the morning.

Safe commutes each way.
