Career Day!

This morning I off to the school to talk with the high school students about the greatness of software development for career day.  It is going to be a fun morning, talking with them a little about their future and providing advice from a seasoned veteran.

I am been thinking about what one message I should tell them about life, outside of the software world.  My mind immediately goes here to Micah 6

No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:
to do what is right, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God.

or to Luke 10

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”

What one thing would you tell them?

Work, Couches and a Guest

Wow, its one of those weeks were my mind is so occupied by big design sessions at work that my creativity is zapped.  This morning while still in the comfort of my covers, I found myself- due the the glorious wonders of technology- corresponding with my co worker who was already hard at work in an country where the sun rises much earlier.  Even last night I feel asleep on our Bush Couch ( the couch we purchased by GW’s first money hand out years ago) while thinking about how to solve a “serious software design problem”.  Anyway enough of that. ( but something has to fill this space right?)

Sometimes its better to have a guest blogger and today its David.  That’s right King David and his blog/song we refer to as Psalm 32 about the joys of forgiveness.

Psalm 32 (New International Version)

Psalm 32

Of David. A maskil.

1 Blessed is he
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.

2 Blessed is the man
whose sin the LORD does not count against him
and in whose spirit is no deceit.

3 When I kept silent,
my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night
your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was sapped
as in the heat of summer.

5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
and did not cover up my iniquity.
I said, “I will confess
my transgressions to the LORD “—
and you forgave
the guilt of my sin.

6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters rise,
they will not reach him.

7 You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.

9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
which have no understanding
but must be controlled by bit and bridle
or they will not come to you.

10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
but the LORD’s unfailing love
surrounds the man who trusts in him.

11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous;
sing, all you who are upright in heart!

Rejoice, your forgiven, that always good stuff.
