.::Worst Job in Middle Tennessee

Yesterday while I was driving to do some training at a retreat in Middle Tennessee I noticed a guy parked on the side of the road. As I drove by I had to avoid some road kill in the middle of the highway. I looked back in the rear view mirror and realized that it was this guys job to pick up the roadkill.
Bummer job.
Two lessons that I gained from this:
1. When my job or when ministry gets difficult, I can always remember that guy who has to scrape dead carcasses off the highway.
2. I am glad there are guys whose job it is to scrape dead carcasses off the highway.

Ministry is a comsuming calling, but it is rewarding, frustragin, tiring, exhausting, exciting all rolled in to one.  I don’t think the guy who scrapes roadkill can say that about his job.
