FOR TODAY October 27, 2014
Outside my window… dark. I’m blogging late at night which seems to be my M.O.
I am thinking… about the things I need to get done tomorrow while Daniel is in school. Lots of papers to sort, insurance phone calls, etc.
I am thankful… for Katie of Blessed with Full Hands who got to meet her little girl today in China.
In the kitchen… dishes in the sink because the dishwasher isn’t working correctly.
I am praying for… a call for Jon, some special intentions, and continual discernment regarding a few aspects of my life.
I am going… to hopefully get my hair cut tomorrow. It’s definitely time.
I am reading… Becoming Who You Are: Insights on the True Self from Thomas Merton and Other Saints by James Martin, S.J. and another murder mystery whose title is eluding me.
I am hoping… to find lots for Daniel to do on Friday when he is off school.
I am looking forward to… the costume parade at Daniel’s elementary school on Thursday morning. He’ll be dressed as a Giants fan so I’m also hoping that the Giants win the World Series.
I am hearing… Jon’s CPAP.
Around the house… quiet because everyone else is asleep.
A favorite quote for today… “Isaiah 55 provides an entirely different framework for thinking about God’s justice, because it suggests that we have it backward — the mystery lies not in God’s unfathomable wrath but in his unfathomable mercy. God’s ways are higher than our ways because his capacity to love is infinitely greater than our own. Despite all that we do to alienate ourselves from God, all that we do to insult and disobey, God abundantly pardons again and again.” — Rachel Held Evans, Evolving in Monkey Town
One of my favorite things… watching “raccoon TV” in the evenings — there are raccoons nearby who stop by my in-laws’ yard for a snack and they get whatever leftovers there are that aren’t edible for the humans.
A few plans for the rest of the week: possible haircut tomorrow, some walks by myself/with Daniel, choir practice on Wednesday, Daniel’s costume parade for school on Thursday, and whatever comes up this weekend.
