failure to serve

yesterday i felt a bit like a failure. i tried to put together a service project but no one can come because i picked a holiday weekend. i think i'll push it back a week and hope people can come then. but on top of that, i went to the humanitarian center for my monthly assignment with the ward, and although a few good friends showed up, the humanitarian center wasn't open. well, it was open but we don't think it was supposed to have been. we couldn't find anyone home and only could turn on half the lights. we debated working anyway, but opted not to since the church is particular about following protocol. so i came home and read some of my book, "a confederacy of dunces," which didn't do much to improve the failure mood. it's a book about an annoying failure of a person. funny stuff. unique voice. try it, but you might not like it.

By the time we showed up, the doors were locked. Did you ever heard what the deal was with that? If they said anything at church about it, I missed it.

You are judged by your desires, so you didn't fail. At least that's how I'm choosing to look at it.

i did hear - apparently they canceled us by mistake. but we verified all our upcoming dates and discussed sending an email of reminder BEFORE the sunday before our scheduled date of service.
thanks for the validation on my desire! good perspective.
