Am attempting to observe Lent. “A discipline won’t bring you closer to God. Only God can bring you closer to Himself. What the discipline is meant to do is to help you get yourself, your ego, out of the way so you are open to His grace.” (From Donna at Quiet Life )

Purim in 2010 will start on Sunday, the 28th of February and will continue for 2 days until Monday, the 1st of March. And the first weekend in March the women of my church go on retreat to study the book of Esther! Good timing.

“Her own misfortunes engrossed all the pity she once had for those of another, and nothing gave her ease. In company she dreaded contempt, and in solitude she only found anxiety.” ~The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith

‎’If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” Romans 12:18. I realized yesterday that I’m not very good at peacemaking. Now what do I do?

In South Dakota so far we’ve encountered an exploded pizza oven, a lost ice cream truck, and DD’s plane commandeered by Canadians. What more?

“They try to fix us instead of helping us meet the Jesus who is present in our unfixedness. Sometimes they try to silence us so they can “protect” the rest of the church from people like us because we might “poison” the rest of the congregation. Mostly, they try to ignore us and hope we’ll go away– and usually we do. We may still attend, but our soul withers and dies because we have decided there is something wrong with us so we silence the very voice of God in our lives.” ~Mike Yaconelli

Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling. Proverbs 20:3. Think I should make a wall-sized poster & hang it in the kids’ bathroom?

I want to resign —from everything. I might make a competent desert hermit monk (female). Is there a word for that?

Thanksgiving: I am thankful for a country in which the transfer of power, or the partial transfer, is peaceful and even fun. Well, it’s fun for me today. Thank you, Lord.
