The World before 9 am
I actually got up and attended Matins this morning, much to my astonishment. And I was incredibly glad for it! Have you been to those worship services where it feels like the lessons, psalms, and music were put together specifically for your renewal? It is quite overwhelming. That was this morning's service for me today. A truly wonderful way to begin a day.
Then, a sentiment at Jenni's journal that echoes most with some of my struggles the last few weeks: I tried not to get caught up in any drama today, one of my friends said the way to survive around here is just to be jaded and distanful. I think that could work in some cases, but that just isn't my life story in Christ. You go, pink lady!
