Well, here we are, walking thru all kinds of bits of 'life'.
Lori is recovering from a vascular procedure, doing OK but still moving a bit slow.
We will be attending a memorial service tomorrow here in Chula Vista for the young man who tragically died on our street a few weeks ago. Soooo many folks are still grieving...
Always some detail to take care of: property upkeep, correspondances, updates, car repair, meetings....
So much of ministry is handling a million details, 98% 'just stuff'... being responsible...
I love the way The Message renders Matthew 11:28-30
28-30 (Jesus talking here) “Are
you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with
me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced
rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep
company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
I'm SO wanting to learn the Unforced rhythms of Grace... me, the guy with two left feet...
