I'm on a FB hiatus. Feels strange. I'm not sure how many time today I thought of some little phrase for a "status." It's no wonder that that daily posting is so addictive. The very idea that there are people out there willing to read some little tidbit posted is rather exhilarating. Or is that just me? I'm training myself to think in larger chunks now. Entire paragraphs. And I wonder why my students have trouble writing larger pieces! I just read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 in The Message "So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever." I experience that 'Unfolding Grace' on a daily basis. On hectic chaotic days, in troubled times, at moments in which I really don't know what to say, He's just there, speaking to my soul. Spreading Grace.
