Today was a work day with plenty of progress and next to no stress. Dave returned from Florida; it's good to have him back. Used yesterday's journal as our staff devotional— I like when I have something to share, as well as hearing others' take on it and exchanging application in our lives. Like LiveJournal, but with real, live people (that was a joke). Tonight I joined taci for dinner and catching up.
Maybe it's all in my head, but that's where it belongs: I already feel more focused from my not-yet-day-old fast from television. Chose not to play any music this evening, either. The quiet is soothing. My prayers are less disjointed. My attention span seems longer, stronger.
Though I'm grateful, I am so as one in preparation. There are difficult times ahead, and I think I am being readied. This frames my joy, but doesn't diminish it in the least. Context is important, too.
