There's a lot to be said for clarity. Take, for instance, this error message I got today at work:

I wasn't quite sure what to say... I hit Yes and it didn't crash my computer, so I think it was the right choice.

Now that I'm back from my retreat, I'm approaching life with a little more clarity and a little more vision. I'm starting to get a sense of what God has planned for me, and I find myself - strangely - to be a willing participant.

In my earlier years, when God would reveal snippets of his plan for me, I would often balk and delay and distract myself, but I think the main fruit of this past weekend is a more immediate acceptance of his instruction.

I don't feel the time is right to blog about what I perceive this most recent direction to be. It is, of course, a worthy objective. It is also one which - had I been asked even a week ago - I would have rejected.

I don't have much else to say right now... the Middle East is a mess, the NDP won another majority in Manitoba, Stephen Harper is abandoning his roots as a libertarian... nothing else really seems worth spending my time on after this weekend.

Please keep me in your prayers as I discern this through.


  1. Where's the "Please rephrase in the form of a question" button when you need it?

  2. I'm proud of you dear, and I love you.

  3. It's good, sometimes, not to tell too soon. I've found that something is lost in the telling when we speak before we should. God bless you silence.
