Gearing UP

Interesting how those busy days - those days when you put your head down & prep for a bunch of things - that you end up with surprises, like drop-in visits and hospital calls, eh? I'm feeling more today than ever that it's these days that require attention to God in prayer. Maybe one day I'll step it up to Martin Luther, who's believed to have said "I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer..."

That's a great quote!

You know what I feel like doing today? A few hours of basketball with my good ol' pal Bruce :)

I had a Hebrew test that I bombed today, not because I didn't know my grammar, but because I didn't know how to count to ten in Hebrew! The TA pulled a fast one on me and made 20% of the test on counting from one to ten in Hebrew. I hadn't looked at that ONE page in the 20 pages or so of grammar we needed to know. Oh well....

I guess I could spend 3 hours in prayer repenting for not knowing how to count to ten ;)

The lack of predictability in our positions definitely keeps us guessing. The drop-ins and hospital visits take out days but they are the days in themselves.

Did you turn to God in prayer in light of your post?

You are starting to look like me now that you are blogging once a week (or less). C'mon Don! Get back on the train!

I finally posted something tonight and it has been long overdue (even though I have been posting to MVPC's site).
