My religion, my collision, my scape-goat

I'm getting there. Slowly but indefinitely.
I think I've reached the meat. Won't be long till we get to the bone then the marrow. Everything is tied together. I know it is. It's this horrible and huge complex puzzle that's missing pieces. No. It's Christmas lights thrown into a large box that are so tangled, one can barely make the beginning of one and the end of another. But I'm making it work. With help from friends and just keeping my eyes & ears open.
I've been rather busy. Mostly youth leader stuff. Volunteered Saturday at Soul Harvest at a rec center in a poor community. I've never heard so many 5 to 10 year olds call each other 'nigger' before. It was horrible. But ultimately it was fun and I believe a good thing for the youth. We did face painting. And how! At first there weren't too many, but at the end of the day we must have done over a hundred painted, stamped, and 'tatooed' kids! That night I also went to a halloween party in Denton. It could of been better. A whole. Lot. Better. But hey, still love those friends. But something seemed off all through it. Don't know what...
Sunday there was church in the morning and at night there was "dress-up" party at one of the church member's house. On Monday night we went to Hell House, which is a Christian run "haunted house" with real life situations. It was allright. It's been better in past years. But I'm certain a few people benefitted from it, so it was totally worth the insanity. We had picked up kids from the north side, the west side, and everywhere in between. Then we drove all the way out to south of Dallas. We did everything within about four and a half hours. Normally it takes an hour to get to where the Hell House is at. And picking up the kids takes a good while too. So, how I managed to get all those kids back before midnight is beyond me. Thank God for true friends who help out, though.
Halloween SUCKED though. This is how it was supposed to go: Go to the zoo in the morning with a close friend from Denton. Go to work. Pick up youth. Go volunteer again. Go trick or treating near our church. Go home. This is how things actually went down: Went to zoo at noon with friend. Rushed through. Picked up sister-in-law and her kids from school. Called in to work. Went downtown to meet the person who was supposed have given me info sheets about our church to hand out that night. Didn't get them, because her phone died when she got downtown. Went to go pick up kids. Traffic. Traffic. Traffic. Call kids. Most couldn't go because they were either in trouble, parents just didn't let them, or made plans last minute and ditched. By the time I picked up the very few that could go, it was too late to volunteer and those kids didn't want to go trick or treating anyway. So I just dropped them off at their friend's or family's houses where they had needed to go after volunteering anyway. Went to a burger joint. Ate. Took their candy. (key word: took). Went home. Watched a movie.
All through this I got a million phone calls and texts from Junior wanting me to get in touch with Elizabeth. Elizabeth went to jail for forgetting to pay a traffic ticket.
Now things are settling down, and I'm figureing things out, I think. I'm finding absolutely NO solution to my problem, but the more I know about it, the more likely it'll be that I will find the solution.
Again, wish me luck. And may you be blessed.
