I went out to get in my car to drive to work this morning and barely made it down the road, only to discover that I had a flat tire. As I looked at the tire, I noticed a large slash that could really have only occurred if someone had slashed it. So, I spent my morning waiting on a cop to show up and take a report. He very graciously put my spare on for me while he was there. I have a very good idea of who did this but since I didn't see it take place, I can't say for sure. However, we have a neighbor that has been causing a little havoc on our street and seems to be the most likely culprit. The cop mentioned her by name to me when he realized where I lived as there have been other reports lately on her. So, I am putting it mildly when I say that I am very upset. I have to miss a half a day of work and spend money for a new tire, that I did not have. I thought this would be a very good occasion to consult my new translation of the Common English Bible to help me lose the anger and practice forgiveness.
