the sweet and commendable ian returned from his long voyage on the sea...  

bearing a grin on his face and a 25 lb bag of Bob's Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour on his broad shoulder.

by the end of a surprise visit from jinell, 8 or 10 grocery bags full of food presented themselves on my kitchen counter as an anonymous retaliation to my current financial strain.  someone bought me food out of the kindness of their heart and God's, and sent it with jinell as a phantom donor.  it was totally stuff i would eat too- healthy this, vegetable that, white whole wheat the other thing.  there were even a couple chocolate bars  (*drool****).

by the end of the day, i was called to schedule an interview for today for a job at the rocky mountain chocolate shop downtown.

i learned of the salvation of a friend.  the tears of his surrender making the air redolent with the furious love of the crucified one. 

i am fueled by the stern and sagacious proverbs, who redden my face with conviction and send me seeking back to the arms of a God of grace.
