I don't get the whole day off, though—have to go in tonight for a Finance Team meeting. I hate evening meetings, don't like having to go in on holidays, and am not a big fan of finance team meetings, so this is a triple threat. Sometimes the job just has to be done, though, and at the end of the day, I'm OK with that. Need to keep telling myself that, because I can already feel myself getting grumpy about the week ahead.
My iTunes count is at 1886 songs, now that I've weeded out duplicates. While there are much larger libraries, I honestly had no idea I'd accumulated so much. Guess I'm an MP3 pack rat. Will probably ditch the Christmas stuff that's from CDs and bring it back when the season returns.
"I looked, and, lo, a Lamb!" [Revelation 14:1] Why, that Lamb is heaven itself; for as good Rutherford says, "Heaven and Christ are the same thing;" to be with Christ is to be in heaven, and to be in heaven is to be with Christ. That prisoner of the Lord very sweetly writes in one of his glowing letters—"O my Lord Jesus Christ, if I could be in heaven without thee, it would be a hell; and if I could be in hell, and have thee still, it would be a heaven to me, for thou art all the heaven I want." It is true, is it not, Christian? Does not thy soul say so?
