Out of Control

One of the things that I like most about Northridge is the externally minded focus we strive to develop. We put that into action today through something called Northridge Cares. It's a time when we head out into the community to make a tangible impact in various ways. We were partnering with all of our local public schools, the Boys & Girls Club, and and another local church to improve their campuses. We planned out every detail that could be managed, but had no idea what the weather would be like. Naturally it rained all morning, but our devoted volunteers came out anyway. We had to quickly readjust our plans, but I feel confident in saying that the work sites were better when we left than we arrived. I am grateful for the hard work, the willingness to adjust, and the endurance for cold, rainy weather to get the job done.

Things do not always go as planned & there will be circumstances beyond your control. Each of us get to make the choice of whether we will adapt and forge ahead or have our emotions and intentions derailed by things outside of our control.
