"God bless God, sometimes He knows just what He's doing."

I don't remember where we heard that, but it's one of those silly/true things that sticks in your brain.  Especially if you're me, and you love silliness and you love truth.

Our holiday was GREAT.  So great.   I'll write about it some day soon, when I get a chance to pick a few photos.

I'm finding things hard these days, because YAY, my Mom is close enough that  I can go feed her every day and yet - sigh.  She can't even FEED herself, and because it seems everywhere I turn, someone I care about is struggling and because of things I can't talk about that keep me awake at night lecturing the ceiling and calling it prayer.

And then on the other hand, there's this enormous bright light that is the highly encouraging feedback I've been given regarding the Perpetual Novel, and unsolicited highly useful editting and advice re What To Do Next and some days I'm sort of calm and looking forward to a second pilgrimage in the same year and some days I am sick sick sick to my very bones with the knowledge that I am not worthy of this calling.

And today was one of those days, and today I got an email from someone I haven't spoken to in over thirty years who happened upon this very blog and said enough kind and encouraging things that I am crying.

You know who you are.  Today was the perfect day to get your note.  Thanks for listening to the prompting.

Praise God for friends!! It's days like this that remind us that God hasn't fallen off His throne, that He's still in charge. I sure am glad of that!!!
