and the mood was, subdued to say the least. There was not a lot of joy there.
When I reflect on one of my first board meetings here, (Shhhh don't tell anyone) I still cringe.
I sat mostly in a state of total shock as two, three or four parties, I can't recall, yelled at one another at the top of their lungs for two hours. They were not afraid to include personal insults and nuances in their voluminous exchanges.
And then, after two hours of that, we all went out for a friendly coffee. And my eyes were as big as a two Chinese woks.
I crawled into the house later that night in stunned silence, fell into the big chair and just sat there, trying to make sense of the evenings display.
And I thought to myself, and to God, what am I doing here?!?!
Indeed. It's safe to say He knows what He's doing.
