Gambit

It will be a hard life— one without reward, without remorse, without regret. A path will be placed before you. The choice is yours alone. Do what you think you cannot do. It will be a hard life, but you will find out who you are.

—Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace


Called to the darndest things sometimes. "Counterintuitive" would be a gross understatement. It would also be a bit inaccurate, because, deep down, I saw it coming, almost from the beginning. Paradoxical, that something can be at once forseen yet unexpected. I didn't choose the timing— He did. The move felt easy, natural, right. I suspect it threw the enemy for a loop, and I hope I'm being faithful to Jesus in this. I think I am.

Walked in the mist to work this morning without a jacket. Needed to feel it on my face. It was good.

Neglected to pack my own lunch today, so we'll see what I decide to do about that. The coffee in my stomach is crying out for company.
