What Laurie's Reading

Well, since I've got nothing else going, I thought I might as well share this video clip.  (Apologies to those of you who've already viewed it on my other blog, or Facebook.)  The truth is, Paul and I have both been ridiculously busy with our respective jobs. We have not been too busy, however, for the occasional geeky tomfoolery. Here's a peek at a little project Paul is warming up to - interviewing people about what they've been reading. Most naturally, and conveniently, he's begun with me!

Here we are in our natural habitat. And here I am unrehearsed and unprepared - as usual!

Missing you

I miss my friends. I miss my blog. I miss the joy of wondering out loud and sharing things I'm learning.

I'm busy with work and other projects I'm not at liberty to discuss which are taking up almost every moment of my "free" time, that is, the time I would usually spend writing here. I barely even have the time to read what others are writing.

Many exciting things are happening, too, which I am also not free to discuss.  But I trust that when this season of hard work and rapid change, and crazy-unexpected-answers-to-prayer has passed, God will fill my heart with words of hope and encouragement to share.

For now I can say that God is faithful and hears and answers prayer. And even better news than that is that the Gospel is true and it is good news. Today I heard the Gospel proclaimed. I hadn't quite noticed that through the busy work week I'd been slowly suffocating, that is until I breathed in the clean brisk air of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as it flowed from the lips of the preacher this morning.

Look to Christ. Focus on Him. Our hope, our future, our love, our peace, our unity, are all found in Him, and Him alone.
