What do you want?

Hey there!  How are all y’all doing?  Things are going pretty well here.  It’s been cloudy all weekend, but not much rain.  That’s actually okay here.  I was able to take a beautiful drive through an impossible detour to meet with my spiritual director this afternoon.  We sat at a small table at the edge of a little pond, surrounded on the far side by trees and teeming with fish and dragonflies.  It was such a beautiful and peaceful setting. It was a bit warm, but cloudy, with a cool breeze rippling the surface of the water, so it was quite pleasant.  Grab a glass of sweet tea or something and find a relaxing spot!  Continue reading
