New Heights!

Carol Ann Weaver reports that Paul (almost 15) is 6' 4 3/4" and Michael Weaver (17) is 6' 5 5/8". George Weaver is ONLY 6' 4 1/2"! I come in a dismal 4th place at 6' 2 1/4".

St. Teresa of Avila Quote

Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing afright thee.
All things are passing,
God never changeth.
Patient endurance
Attaineth to all things.
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting . . .
Alone God sufficeth.

The Holy Spirit Tingle

In the busy-ness of my life, I am suddenly aware that the house is totally empty because Paul is at Ultimate, George took Michael to watch Paul and walk home with him, and George is going to Faruz's house to help him move Khairol and Noorul's couch.

I really wanted to help, but I my back is whack again for some reason. Maybe it is so I can be home here all alone and yet not alone. I feel You within and around me.

Thank You!

So, I thought I would muse on that for a bit.

I am tired, Lord. I had a very good Shabbat Retreat, and I was rested going into it and rested during it, but my lack of sleep last night has made me very tired. :(

So, hopefully, I will get a nap.

I am going to go great guns for 10 minutes on this freewrite. I am meeting with a person (not sure if she wants direction - she just wanted ...
