The picture

Over on the right is a sidebar with a piece of art I got from a friend [Melissa Baldwin] for my Birthday in January. When she gave it to us she said "I don't know what these 5 stones mean...so...whatever." Curiously I had just done something with 5 stones. Phone interview or questionaire I can't remember which for sure. What I do remember is the oddity of irony in the context of providence...destiny...fate. So we have had it up on the wall as a question and now a confirmation. Thought you might get a kick out of that. I enjoy the fact that God is both obvious and subtle at times. And am amuzed that when we want the one he often chooses the other.

Went kayaking today...it was beautiful. Warm sun, cool breeze and lots of wildlife both in the skies and on the water. A bridge across the lake carried the rest of the world at 65mph...I thanked the Lord for the gift of a paddle instead of a motor [until it was time to go back and the wind changed]..I think I find it hard sometimes to receive his subtle directions...it is usually with such tenderness it comes as a surprise....
