Some Ripening

It’s been quiet around the parish this past couple of weeks. I honestly hope that means you are all busy with God’s work in your own life. Genuine fellowship between us in the Holy Spirit won’t die so long as we are serving Him. Your faithfulness is in my best interest, too.

This is a good time to do as much as we can before things go crazy — and they will. “Work while you have the light,” our Lord said, “because night is coming when no man can work.” It’s a Hebrew figure of speech about how we should stay on task while the context permits. When the moral darkness gets darker, it may be difficult to do what seems so routine today.

A few items of note for those of you curious about my welfare. The bike should be available today and I promise to post pictures. And just in time it seems my knee is actually beginning to loosen up a little. It’s still stiff to bend beyond a right angle, but it’s far less painful to bump up against the limit. I may be able to ride immediately. My oh my; I can’t wait for some saddle time.

Today I felt moved to check eBay again and found a laptop I could already afford that seems to be what I’m seeking. I’ll let you know more about it after I get it, but I note with amusement it’s already got Mint Linux installed, which is what I plan to use anyway.

These are just the tools and trappings of my service. They aren’t important in themselves, only as symbols of our Lord’s care and provision. He supports what He calls us to do.

And it’s my sincere prayer to the Father that things are coming ripe in your own lives. Sure, I’d love to hear from you, but only if God grants the time and impulse to respond.

    I haven’t been able to comment much because of work and some funny business with my home machine. The latter should clear up soon.

    Love to see the new ride when it comes in.
