Much has been happening. Church work, which I have chosen and love, but which has absorbed a good deal of my writing time; I can do just so much ‘on the screen’ on a given day. Then, two very close friends have died, early in January my best college friend, and just the other day another good friend.
Death asks us to stop and be, stop and consider, stop and pray, stop and remember. When we remember the good, the meaning, and the love that a friend has shown, we have a good chance to remember to live it out in our own lives. I can only do this in silence, solitude, and simplicity, and that is what I am been doing.
