My job keeps getting
better and better.
It is such a relief...
Now that I am a few days into it,
I am glad for it;
I hope it continues to go well.
I am glad also that it is
a temporary job
and that I am gearing up for
a move later this year.
Orthoman and I are still figuring out
when we are doing what.
Wanted to mention this book
merely because I wanted record of it.
A Grace Disguised: How the soul grows through loss
I have not read this newer version
but when the woman who was my first
(and only officially considered)
(I saw how she was this years after I lost her)
died and I was in the middle of
one of my greatest times of devestating grief
I found this book in my
and it really helped me.
Not because I remember it giving me advice
but reading the story of another's loss
and how he remained a Christian
and how he suffered through it
was of great help.
Someday I would like to get a copy of this...
Lent is a hard time for many
or for all of us.
This past weekend was especially hard for me;
I feel like I am in the calm in the middle of a storm
and I wish I could stay in the calm
I keep thinking of the monastics I know
and how they have really grown
and have really deepened in
prayer and in remaining calm and at peace.
I have a long way to go
but knowing that others have gone
this way before
gives me hope.
