Well, I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m going to end up needing some serious energy/enthusiasm/grace/discernment before its all over with. Especially if its anything like today seemed to be… The most memorable part of it was trying to talk someone off the anger ledge. Personally, I basically agree with them but its this person’s inherent lack of filtration on their brain-mouth interface that made me feel like I needed to say something. Maybe it was a function of my passivity, I don’t know, but I felt like I had to. Anyways, if they still go ahead and sink themselves that’s entirely on them.

Father, you know each individual situation we’re in and our strengths and weaknesses. Reveal yourself in each of them and enable us to experience you more and more fully. Personally, if its part of your plan I’d like nothing more than to speak with your voice and help bring at least some measure of stability to the situation. Father, I’m glad and thankful that you’re a healer. I have no idea what’s going on with her but she seemed to be on a much more ‘even keel’ today. Whatever the cause or reason I wouldn’t mind too much if it was permanent. Permanence there would definitely be widely felt. :-D
