I was sitting off to the side surrounded by my family and friend. A quick surveillance led me to the conclusion that nobody could really see me (and truly, by biggest concern is distracting other people... I do not think the good Lord would be offended), so I pulled out the tiny beginning of my 2nd OSU sock. I'm telling you... I heard every word our pastor said and my mind never drifted to things I needed to do later or the upcoming week or anything. Since this is a constant struggle for me, and always has been even back in my school days, I found it quite settling to have my hands busy. I don't know that I'll make a habit of it... it still makes me feel a bit naughty... but what a blessing to be able to focus on a sermon!

I did it. Now I don't say this with pride... more as an admission, or confession if you will. But, look what I did in church this morning.
