Crossing paths

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.

–1 Thessalonians 5:16-24


Encouraging.

Thwarted by a closed Victrola early this morning. Plumbing work. At least going that way allowed me to take lunch to a homeless man, and afterward I just decided to come into the office. Hate backtracking.

Focusing will be a challenge today; I can feel it in my bones. Or wherever it is one feels impending unfocusedness.

A woman at my church wants to put together a zine. Brilliant. Sounds like I’ll be coordinating from the staff end. Already reminded of working with Jodi many years ago on the school newspaper. The memories will be melancholy sometimes, but at least I will remember. The project has a ton of potential.

Just got a random IM from vbouldr. Random from a human perspective, anyway. He was trying to change his journal style, and it turns out he’s a student at the University of Central Florida and involved with InterVarsity, where one of my former RAs is the staff worker. Small world. No question who’s in charge of it.

Hey, this is even stranger. I checked out his journal, and I know the kid from Breading Bread and from around town (I think)! God's plan is amazingly big....

...and yet, somehow, just the right size.
So, who else do you know?

Oh, I'm all over the place. I'm kind of used to it. I once ran into someone I knew on a 3 am flight out of Las Vegas.
Mr. Morpheus.

Re: Hoo HAA

If not ever, then pretty close.
Really thankful to be reading Bible verses in your journal again. I appreciate it. :-D
a zine?! that's awesome! i used to have a zine a while back, but it's been defunct. but this inspires me to start up on it again. i'd love a copy whenever you guys are finished!
