A Typical Day in the Neighborhood


Outside my window: dogs arguing over steak bones, late summer sunlight, beckoning rocker that must be ignored.

On my kitchen table: Brandywine tomatoes, a few aging apples in my mother’s yellow mixing bowl, cabbage plants that must not be ignored

On my CD player: Chris Tomlin “Awakening”, with a heart cry that I know the Father won’t ignore.

On my to-do list: papers, papers, and more papers to be graded; dishes in the sink  (wish I could ignore)

On the evening’s agenda: next-to-last week of “Jesus the One and Only”

On my reading list: “Forgotten God” by Frances Chan

On my wish list: Canon Rebel DSLR, clean dishes, a nap

On my prayer list: teenagers, middle schoolers, my pastor’s family, my church, the nation, all of you

What’s up at your house?

Be blessed today!
