—John Piper, Desiring God
Enjoying Earl Grey at home this morning. I should begin more of my mornings in quiet and prayer like this one. My discipline has been poor for some time, yet God calls me gently and irresistably to Himself. I am grateful, and hopeful.
Good day yesterday. Oddly, we had yet another family from Honolulu join us at church (this time they're new residents staying at the Navy Lodge in Marysville)— I'm wondering if I missed a memo. taci made me a breakfast bagel. Blanche brought me homemade raspberry jam. Matthew and I had a brief, caring moment. Later in the day, I got to speak with expressedinword and with onesamtwo. It will be good to see them, along with romanaurora, melissa52677, dawn11476, and (hopefully) valleyjezreel in my North Carolina adventure next week(!).
Dave will probably be back in the office today; I've missed him. Have a ton to accomplish before taking off for Houston on Thursday. I hope I can be less scattered, but either way, I can't rely on myself. My Shepherd will supply my need.
