Cooling down

There is only one Being who can completely satisfy to the absolute depth of the hurting human heart, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord is so obviously uncompromising with regard to every human relationship because He knows that every relationship that is not based on faithfulness to Himself will end in disaster. Our Lord trusted no one, and never placed His faith in people, yet He was never suspicious or bitter. Our Lord’s confidence in God, and in what God’s grace could do for anyone, was so perfect that He never despaired, never giving up hope for any person. If our trust is placed in human beings, we will end up despairing of everyone.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (30 July,"The Teaching of Disillusionment ")


That pretty well encompasses and sums up everything I have to say about politics.

Wonderful, blessed day off. And cooler! Good thing, because the fan I bought Saturday conked out last night. The toast tongs still seem to be holding up fine.

(I've used the verb "conked" in my journal twice this week.)

Might continue my tradition of taking in a movie today, but I haven't picked one yet. Saving The Village to see with Nate.

Can't even begin to describe how much the cooler weather is lifting my spirits.
