Reality rubs me the wrong way

A bit under the weather the past couple of days—just a nudge, hopefully behind me now. Been constantly cranking away at things, and yet still behind on a ton. Much of that feeling is probably more a matter of being more focused on my own cramped personal dramas than abiding in Jesus and the larger story to which He's invited me.

We've had slow internet at home recently, and that plus a couple of other internet-related frustrations makes me realize how much that stuff gets under my skin without my conscious knowledge. Honestly, it's pretty inordinate. Those kinds of frustrations grow much larger unacknowledged. Exposed to the light of conscious thought, it's easy to see how ridiculous they are (even if they're tougher than that to shake). I'm a spoiled, selfish creature. Thank God there's hope for me.
