Lots of words!

Yesterday Kazu, Ken and I spent the day at the warehouse, boxing up tool orders. Lots of fun, for some odd reason. Probably because it was the first and last time we'll do that. Excuse me while I have myself a wee weep.
Today is a clean up day. Something that, at the HCS, would probably be called Constructive Get-out, and at FDTP would be Community Service. For us here, it's just plain old clean-up, with no glamor or glory. The best way.
...
I don't have so much to blog about lately, I'm realizing. I live a normal Family life--up and down, but never too up and never too down. Actually, there are a lot of "too up"s, but they're the sort of ups that you can't really blog about.
Like FDTP, for example. How do you blog about that? A feast for the spirit was all it was. It's so boring when people blog about food. I could always post a "foodie photo" of an FDTP class sheet or something. But that would be like, "um, yeah". Kind of like this stupid sentence where I'm even thinking about it is "um, yeah".
Let's see. Other ups. Oh! At FDTP I was part of an exclusive club of a few brave men who would wake up at 4 in the morning and come out to the field to watch the sunrise. We had LJ time, praise time, and then a few seconds of just plain talk before we'd get tired and decide that it was time to hit the sack again. Once someone showed up with a guitar and aired the strange notion that I could play it. I struggled to please him, and he was generous about the whole thing. But that was definitely an up. All the Spirit, coupled with the morning, coupled with the brotherhood. Good stuff. Thrilling in a very gratifying and pleasing sort of way.
Since coming back from FDTP I've tried to launch into my work, but my work is getting steadily more frightening. I'm faced with the possibility of being thrust into ministries that I never thought I'd be capable of. It's such a fright to have people think you're capable of something when you don't feel like you are. And then you have to do the humble thing and struggle to learn it by faith, because the Lord tells you that's the right thing to do, and you secretly know it too. I guess we'll see what happens. I can always let the little failures work their humility magic on me.
PTL.
And here is a happy present for you. My desktop for the day. HAVE A NICE NICE DAY.
