March 30: I Am In Control Day, et al.

I Am In Control Day

I am in control. Yep. Just in case you missed the memo, I got it.

Yeah, right.

This day exists because of a political slip of tongue back in 1981. In the chaos after President Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt, Secretary of State Alexander Haig held a spur of the moment press conference while they waited for vice president to arrive. It seems that Haig was trying to explain that he was temporarily, unofficially taking care of the White House, while they waited to figure out what should happen next.

Self control is very important, but, on the other hand, most of us need to remember that we aren’t actually in control.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.”

Galatians 5:22-23b

National Doctor’s Day

Today is also the day to stop and appreciate all the doctors in your life – those men and women who have made your life better, and maybe saved it a time or two, even though we don’t always like what they have to say.

Take a Walk in the Park Day

I love our local parks. A picnic, round of basketball,  paths to walk, even a playground to goof off in – it’s great. Now that it’s officially spring, stop by sometime today and enjoy being outside.

Possibly the coolest park I've ever seen! (located in Poland)
