Getting started

If you yourself do not cut the lines that tie you to the dock, God will have to use a storm to sever them and to send you out to sea.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (8 June,"What's Next To Do?")


The coinciding timing of my pastor's vacation and my move has been a true gift. Since there's no one in the office to support, I've been able to rearrange my days and spend just a few hours a week there. Lots can be done from home, on my schedule, and with John out, I don't have to juggle or feel guilty about that.

Being out in the city often brings divine appointments. Yesterday, through a series of small incidental choices, I was on a bus near the office when I saw a friend we'd been concerned about and praying for a few days earlier. She's been struggling a lot over the past few months, stopped coming to church or Community Group, and hasn't returned the majority of calls and emails from friends. So I hopped off the bus and met her across the crosswalk. We talked awhile, and I simply let her know how much she is cared for and missed, as well as asking if I could give her a call to get together. There were tears in our eyes when we shared a long hug goodbye. Aslan is on the move.

The temptation to run around constantly as I get settled is fairly strong, but God's given my body limits, gentle reminders that it's not His intent for me to do everything at once (though I ignore those reminders a fair amount).

Need to get some groceries in this place. Safeway.com, here I come.

Yum.

Re: Who knew there were so many flavors of pot pie?

All good, except...why did it not occur to me that I ordered three pounds of healthy buttery spread? I am a bachelor through and through.
