—Peter (Acts 10:28, 34-35)
Finally back at my beloved Victrola. I've been too long absent from truly good coffee and an atmosphere that feels like home. One of the baristas, Kathy, and I had a discussion about North Carolinian coffee misconceptions (e.g. the number of shots and the size of the drink are not related variables). She had her worst cup of coffee there; I can relate. The hospitality more than made up for the difference, but good coffee is still good coffee.
Reading in Acts and am only now beginning to understand the deep significance of God's declaring unclean food clean to Peter. He reveals as He will, in His time, by His Spirit. What grace.
I should be working, I really should. Some things inside me are taking a while to return to my normal life (oxymoron). Spent most of yesterday in my darkened apartment, not even eating until after 20:00. Getting out today is a good step forward; I feel better and better. Next time I go on an adventure, I'll be sure to leave more buffer time before and after, if possible. Learning my abilities also means learning my limits.
