Early morning random thoughts

Just a quick post, realizing I haven’t been updating lately. It’s dawn as I do my daily Bible reading and morning prayer time. I am staying current with the plan I am using with YouVersion, as well as the daily office readings. They keep me grounded and start my day off each morning.
The writing time has been a difficult discipline, but some rhythm has developed. I have two very different areas I am writing about, so I try to keep them separate, although there are actually points of convergence. In addition, the Bible study I am developing is coming along nicely. Look out St. Patrick’s, I now own Logos Bible software and I am really enjoying the resources it has. I see a lot of Greek word studies in our future!
I am also keenly aware that my sabbatical time is winding down, and I am constantly turning my thoughts to the parish. And that is as it should be. I pray for y’all every day! I know many of you have held me and my family in your prayers as well. Speaking of, I have a prayer request. Jennifer continues to really struggle with recovery from her knee surgery, today we go for a second opinion from a highly recommended doctor near where we are staying. Please pray we get some good answers and a positive plan of how to get her back to her normal active self again.
Thanks, and God bless.

    Your blog showed up on facebook, so I’m reading! It’s good to hear from you David. And you are very smart to re-entry through blogging. That will the ease the return! I love the idea of morning prayer and I really love my idea of a small group of us reading a book together. That group would be you, me, Patrick, Chris, Jennifer and maybe Betsy Baumgarten, who is my new assistant chaplain at CES. Robert having become rector at Redeemer! I am going to get that one off the ground this year. Wouldn’t it be great to get morning prayer going as well. I do and will keep you both in my prayers and look forward to seeing you on return.
