Slow moving object

"Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."
—Revelation 22:17

Jesus says, "take freely." He wants no payment or preparation. He seeks no recommendation from our virtuous emotions. If you have no good feelings, if you be but willing, you are invited; therefore come! You have no belief and no repentance—come to Him, and He will give them to you. Come just as you are, and take "Freely," without money and without price. He gives Himself to needy ones.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening (14 June, Morning: "Take Freely")

What a stunning devotion this morning. I need to hear that, often.

The days have been gorgeous, with plenty of sun and clouds alike. I like not having to choose between the two.

John's away for a couple of days, so work is less structured. Had coffee with Dave yesterday, who I hadn't seen in probably a year. He and Carrie seem to be doing well on Bainbridge. Good to catch up with him.

Tonight is Micah's houseapartmentwarming party. Not far to go, since his new place is just around the block from the office. Maybe I'll bring him a plant, since all the plants at my place are donations from him just before he left for Scotland last year.

Got tagged for some memes or something, but I confess that I haven't kept track. I'm a LiveJournal disappointment.
