Pretty good day

Attendance this morning was surprisingly strong for a summer Sunday. That was good.

I spent some time this afternoon out at the holler, working on the future building site. Trimmed the brush back, then felled three trees, including whacking-and-stacking.

Overall, things are going well. So why do I feel so uneasy? Perhaps because I've got some things on the back burner that ought to be progressing better than they are. I keep telling myself that God will either bless 'em or he won't, and my fretting over them won't help -- but I can't help it. Peace has to be re-constructed over and over again (or the gift must be re-received, if you will).

I'm meeting caoimhinolorica for coffee and lunch tomorrow morning. I need that. I could have used a buddy today to chat with as I worked in the holler, or to finish the day off with. It's too long between encounters with my old friends. Can't hold my breath forever.
