It’s a new day, and I’m happily munching on some pumpkin bread (my favorite!!!) Jenny baked for me and sipping some Earl Grey. The work day has gotten off to a slow start, but I think that’s okay. The apartment is quiet, and I could just bathe in the stillness, the way a girl stretches herself out under the sun’s warm rays.
This weekend was great. The church’s beginnings here were simply and wonderfully centered on knowing Christ. Love, freedom, and grace–is there any better way to live than inside these things? Is there any better way to live than inside Him? I think not.
I’ve felt the creative embers stirring again, which has been and will be terrific. All the upheaval and change, missing family and friends, enjoying new family and the Lord, re-visiting some old heartaches, discoveries and conversations…all this has added to the warm, aromatic stew that’s brewing within me. I’ve gotten the chance to read a lot too (who knows how that’s managed to occur), and I’m slowly remembering how words have the power to change and give life.
