Jury Duty

Have you ever had Jury Duty? Well, this is my first experience with such a blessed occasion. So far, our primary duty has been to stare the gray paint off the walls of the Jury Assembly room. It's been a blast(note sarcasm). Now please don't bash me for being umpatriotic because I'm not enjoying my experience. I understand and respect that it is my civic duty as an American citizen to report for Jury duty when called. That being said, I would much rather be in the court room deciding the fate of anything instead of being in a holding pattern with 50 other dutiful citizens. My complaining aside, I do appreciate the fact that in this country we do have the right to receive a fair trial, and for our fate to be decided by a group of our peers. We are very fortunate to have that right. Anyway Romans 8:28 is still in my Bible. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." I guess that goes for Jury Duty as well.
