Whenever I have contact with my Mom/family, I go through a cycle over and over again. With each contact, I have to re-work through what I already worked through before. Maybe some day I will hold firm to it. the cycle is:
I try my very best to be truthful–to wrestle with the truth, to pursue truth, to let truth change me, to think truth, to write about the truth, and to live truth. I try to present the truth about myself too, both good things and bad, both strengths and weaknesses, failures and weaknesses. I’m not sure I am always successful, but I try.
Yesterday afternoon I made apple pies while EJ watched football on TV. While the pies were baking, I took my dog Danny for a walk. The day was beautiful and the walk delightful. When I got back, the pies had been taken out of the oven (as I asked EJ to do). I was out of tea and he wanted ice cream to go along with the pie, so I walked to the gas station/store to buy both. The store didn’t have the brand of instant tea that I like (they had Nestea, not Lipton) so I bought me a couple of bottles of Sobe Lifewater instead. It was a good delicious treat.
I can’t walk Danny today because it is raining, and raining, and RAINING! There are flood and wind advisories out.
I want to share a fun song with you, but first I have to explain it. There’s deep meaning in it, but if I don’t explain, it will just seem like a weird custom.
Today is what we call a “Two Pot Day”–a day when one pot of coffee is NOT ENOUGH to get us awake and motivated.
I’m a little late but I thought I’d tell you about the Feast of Tabernacles and how it relates to Christians. It is very interesting.
It’s Saturday morning, and I am not sure what happened to the week. It went by in a blur.
I have a question: What do you think of the above quote about friends? Is that what a true friend really is?
It was another absolutely beautiful autumn day.
