From a missionary's e-mail, a prayer request, which, for me, was also a serious challenge: "As my plate is getting fuller, please pray that my time alone with the Lord will not be compromised. This is the most important element of my life in [Country X], in [City Y], SC, anywhere I live. It is so easy for me to get wrapped up in ministry preparations as Martha did and forget that sitting at the feet of Jesus is the best option. Pray that I am found at the feet of Jesus more than at the 'act' of ministry."
K's Cafe has a splendid parody of Habakkuk 3:17-19, which begins:
"Though there are spiders in the toilet
and cockroaches in the garage,"
Ish, of The Path, deserves a wider audience, and not just because this post, "A Life of Service: Musing on the small things done for God" refers to one of my posts. Hers (?--may be his) should be read for its own sake. Unfortunately, for some reason Bloglines reports that her site has no RSS feed.
God willing, I will finish the series on colors, and that on temptations in the Narnia books. Thanks to anyone who is reading this.
