Just a couple of weeks ago Teresa and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary, hence the photo of my wedding ring. Been a really good decade and a half. I love that lady.
I’m ready for the new year, although I’ve been in a little bit of a funk the last week… two jobs ending and a new one beginning with me caught somewhere in the middle. I preached for the 1st Christian Church in Bowie again on Sunday and had a good time. I had the most blessed final shift at Starbucks last night that could be imagined! By 8pm everyone seemed to be at a News Year’s party somewhere and we had like only 20 customers the last two hours including Teresa and the boys! NICE! Tomorrow I arrive at the new office for the first day of my new job.
I’ve bought a new recycled-paper sketch pad to journal prayers in for 2007 with my pen and ink set. I’m about as ready as I can be for the new year. Teresa’s cooking black-eyed peas for our annual animistic ritual.
Psalm 116 comes to me again and again these last couple of weeks as a quiet resting place and song of assurance. God is good, listening, attentive and beautiful.
