Restful Absence

Beginning Saturday, I will travel with my wife to the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia.  We will spend a week together in the midst of God’s good creation.  I will be separated from all electronics–fasting from the computer–in order to simply be present with my wife.  It will be a time of fun, relaxation, meditation, prayer, hiking, playing, swimming and reading. 

I will see you’all on my return (June 27-28 or maybe never). At that time I hope to continue my series on Hermeneutics…at least it is my intention but after a week in the mountains I might just say “ah, that ain’t that imporatnt.”  🙂

Blessings on your week.  May the peace of God rest upon our hearts and enjoy his delight in us.

Here is my daily morning prayer from the Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle; a daily prayer for you and for me:

“Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father,you have brought me in safety to this new day: Preserve me with your mighty power, that I may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all I do direct me to the fufilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.”
