Increasingly drawn— not against my will but beyond it— to focus on battlefield priorities, to shore up defenses and strike at the critical points. Vigilance, diligence, timing. God grant us courage, strength, faith, hope. And love, love most of all, that we may do what love requires.
Community Group was a farewell to Sara, who moves to Portland this week, and a welcome to Grace, who recently moved to Capitol Hill. Sara will be missed dearly, but I'm already excited by what Grace might bring to our lives. She seems sharp, witty, humble, and genuine. Even if nothing else were good, Dawn's fantastic blackberry tart would have redeemed the evening.
Still wound up, about nothing I can put my finger on.
