Seeking freshness

Since today's scheduled to be another late one (Ministry Community Meeting at 19:00), I'm spending some extra morning time at Victrola. Some of it has been work (typing comment cards and prayer requests), yet I'm hopeful that my soul will still a bit. Maybe the coffee shop isn't the best place for this, as I am a struggler with both irritability and distraction.

Starting Eugene Peterson's Leap Over a Wall again. I've a love-hate relationship with Peterson's authorship: it's brimming with emotion and depth, but his play with language and penchant for word creation gets on my nerves. Drawn to consider David freshly, however, and I remember gaining from my first reading of this book.

Much on mind and heart. Friends to pray for as the sand in the hourglass gains fearful speed. In those prayers perhaps I shall discover God and myself afresh.

You are not forgotten.
