Hands on the wheel

barlow_girl actually gets the day off today, in addition to getting home at a reasonable hour yesterday. It's so good to have unscheduled time together, as well as just space for her to rest.

Still wrestling around with some of the themes I wrote about yesterday. It's so easy for me to forget what is true—like a car with its steering out of alignment, my mind quickly drifts to its own usually-destructive direction when left to its own way. Staying on course takes both my will and power beyond myself. I can't save myself from this, but I do need to be engaged with God's work on my mind and heart, placing myself in the path of those people and things that will remind me of the truth.
