—Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (18 August, "Have You Ever Been Speechless with Sorrow?")
There's a lot in this. Honestly, I think most of us are too self-centered to see it.
Full day yesterday: work, lunch with Heather, dinner with cow, Community Group. Good to meet cow in the flesh over a good meal, a good beer, and a good conversation. Taking it easy tonight, which is nice. Stillness comes hard for me, even though it's one of the things I most deeply need. I think lots of us are that way in our current culture.
Way too short tempered the last couple of days.
Letting a lot of things sink in related to remembering what I want. Not epiphanies; just letting the realization bring things to the surface and experiencing them. It's a strange place, but I've been in stranger. And it's a hopeful one, even when I choose directions opposite of what might seem to make sense.
Looking forward to fall and winter, when I can have a fire in my fireplace. I've wanted that for a long, long time.
Love that we will have a Radiohead quote on the cover of our church bulletin this Sunday.
