“I’m sorry, Mr. Agee, that’s not a leaky water pipe in your ceiling. It’s condensation from the AC line. I’m a plumber. You’ll have to call an HVAC company to fix that. That will be $75.”
“I’m sorry, Mr. Agee, you really should replace those tires before you leave on your trip. That will be $652.”
“I’m sorry, honey, but the roof in the shed is leaking in not one place but two. We have to call the insurance agent.”
“I’m sorry, Mike, but I need those assessment reports and faculty rosters before you leave.”
“I’m sorry, Mike, but I need you at this meeting Wednesday and Thursday. It’s really important you be there.”
“I’m sorry to bother you Mr. Agee, but can you talk with a prospective student and his parents? Right now? Can I send them over?”
Sound familiar to you? Paul comforts the Philippians towards the end of his letter to them, and to me, when he said “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” If you life sounds like my, let’s hang on to that today.
I’m really looking forward to being on the road the next several days, to see friends and see our youngest son marry the love of his life. God’s got this and I’m just along for the ride.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
