Good morning. Rough night--Gina's had a pretty bad string of migraines over the past few days, and has been taking quite a bit of medicine in a semi-futile attempt to remain functional. Selah's been pretty sick the since Sunday morning, and really isn't sleeping through the night very well. Poor thing. Even lost her little voice. (SIGH). But on the upside, Justin's moved into the complex over the last few days, which means I get to see a bit more of the man I love.
Last night we rented the first couple DVDs of the 5th season of the Sopranos. What an amazing show. Justin got us hooked on it awhile ago--he made the mistake of letting us borrow the first three seasons, and I think we went through it in a couple weeks. So the three of us sat down last night and watched the first couple episodes. What a great time.
By the way, I'm still not sure if I have his permission, but being that we're all friends in this space, and that most of us understand and respect the soulful sharing of life that this space represents, I'd like to draw your attention to Justin's blog
. His writing is amazing--and he still possesses the courage, purity and vulnerability so common to a new blogger. I love it. It's heavy and raw and hilarious and beautiful. If anything can give you insight into this man that I love so dearly...
I'm ruminating this morning on the way that Barnabas accepted Saul in Acts 9:27, and I'm writing quite a bit offline. I'll publish more later. How amazing is it that a man feared throughout the known world for his pure hatred of the followers of "The Way" was so naturally accepted and vindicated by a man who had every reason to fear for his own life. There's so much to say of risky hospitality...
P.S. Read his entire blog
. There's not that much yet, and it's sooo worth it. Trust me.
