"Ye are Christ's" [1 Corinthians 3:23]. You are His by donation, for the Father gave you to the Son; His by His bloody purchase, for He counted down the price for your redemption; His by dedication, for you have consecrated yourself to Him; His by relation, for you are named by his name, and made one of His brethren and joint-heirs.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Morning and Evening (12 January, Morning: "Ownership")


Early morning Earl Grey. It's been ages, and I've missed it. Have to take it on the couch by the fire this morning, because my desktop computer is down and awaiting resurrection. Taking my tea by the fire is hardly suffering.

CG went pretty well last night. Tabled the study to talk about desire and contentment, relationships, singleness, and fears. Time well spent, though I'm afraid my group can talk longer than I can listen. A point to keep under consideration: those fears and patterns that come into play in my intimate relationships ("I'll be rejected when I'm known," "I run away when they get too close," etc.)? They're probably also good places to start looking for things that are getting in the way in my relationship with God.

Got flattered to death via anonymous comment in lajea's journal yesterday. I think I'm still blushing.

Thanks to pould for linking this Pontificator column on the meaning of "church." I could reference it almost daily.

Think I lost my bus pass. That's going to be $150 worth of suck.

shoot! that stinks about the bus pass. I lost my pass in philly a few years ago when I was a poor college student and it nearly broke my heart.

mmmm. earl grey.
I'm throwing in the towel and getting a replacement tomorrow.

Earl Grey is wonderful.

I like seeing your smiling face here.

I had to go back and look to see what the anonymous compliment was that made you blush. And you know what? I agree 100% with everything she said. I'm sure there are more than two of us out here who think the same thing. They are probably like me, and wish they could meet a man like you in the "real" world! :)
