Dropping the ball…

I missed the mark… I didn’t invite anyone from work to our church sponsored barbeque and I didn’t invite my neighbors.  I really fell short.  I have excusses, but why bother?  I missed it, plain and simple.  What do I need to do to change?  It’s too simplistic to say, “I can’t change myself, I have to rely on God” but too overwelming to say “I’ll pull myself up by my bootstraps, and fix this thing“.  It has to be somewhere in the middle.
