—Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (11 August, "This Experience Must Come")
Entirely too long since I've risen early and spent the morning with my Lord in quiet. It feels like a clandestine meeting, lit by candlelight, wearing my hooded robe, drinking a small pot of Earl Grey with breakfast of bread and grapes. It is a good morning, full of grace that far exceeds my words, or the need of them.
My Utmost for His Highest was just what I needed to read this morning.
