—Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest (16 February, "The Inspiration of Sprirtual Initiative")
The morning is gray and quiet; I appreciate that with a smile. Choral music from Taizé plays in the background. I've just finished my coffee. Have I mentioned lately how blessed I am? Not enough. Deep gratitude in my heart just now, which feels good enough to give me yet another blessing for which to be thankful.
The holiday prevent me from doing lots of my usual Monday tasks, which is a good thing, keeping me paced and focused. That's very important this week as I prepare to enter a season of travel. Looking forward to everything almost cautiously, yet with that undertone of gratitude.
Lent, whatever shall I do with ye?
... baby steps get on the elevator... baby steps get on the elevator... Ah, I'm on the elevator. [Doors close] AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
