the best of

The past two days have been absolutely incredible. Yesterday started off with an early wake up call where there seemed to be activity all around. Thomas and his brother John were outside starting up a fire from the previous night, Zack was making oatmeal. We sat down and spent time in prayer. What a great way to begin a day; sharing a meal with brothers, praying. The day went on. I worked and I didn't suck. Then I spent time with Gabe at Aladdin's. It had been such a long time since we had done that but it was such a great time; like a year ago when these friendships were new and exciting. They haven't lost that spark. I came home and although our power had been cut off it didn't really upset or frustrate me. Gabe and I took the darkness and candles as a great time to pray together again and end our night the same way the morning began. How incredible is it to be surrounded and living with people who desire that kind of intimacy and passion for God!

Then today I woke up, early again, and joined Zack and Thomas (and Arlo) for roasting coffee. There is something so serene about that place. Maybe it was the haze over the fields were the horses lined the horizon, or the cool enough weather to permit a sweater but not require it, but that plus a book brought peace to my heart.

I then came home to an email that was unexpected yet greatly appreciated. And while it offered encouragement it also brought good news:

It is truly humbling when God smiles on you and reminds you that things of this world can be quite petty. Following Him is definitely a better way to live.
