The peonies on the coffee table looked so beautiful yesterday. The fragrance of peonies is heavenly. Like roses, but a lot more subtle.
Going back to my office today for the first time since last Wednesday. It was good to be away for five days, and will be equally good to get back. I got a lot of sleep over the weekend and a lot of peace and contemplation. I needed both desperately.
Just looking forward to the day. It is nice to not dread the day as I have come to do in the last several months. I have been through some difficult things in my day, and this job is right up there with them.
I gave my sponsee the lecture last night about taking responsibility for herself and looking for what her role is in each situation. And then praying for God to show her how she can bring something to the workplace instead of demanding that everything be to her liking. I am not sure she is fluent in this language, she may not have even heard me. I hope she did.
Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:13
