Today, I’m in St. Louis at Women of Faith. Each year, I look forward to taking a break from the routine and focusing on God. These two days go a long way toward recharging my spiritual batteries.
Friday update: I’m actually writing this post a few days early, but if I’ve stayed on schedule, I’ve got one chapter to go. This is the intense resolution of the book with some of my favorite scenes.
What have I learned this week- technically speaking? Mozilla Firefox rocks! The add-ins are tremendous and it’s faster and slicker than IE. I also got some comments on my blog posts which were incredibly encouraging.
What have I read? I’m kind of on vacation so I’m reading , The Great Influenza about the 1918 pandemic. It’s a narrative nonfiction. The fascinating thing to me is the description of the world of the turn of the century. I don’t always grasp how different society was, how far we’ve come and the developments are not always positive. On the book so far, my verdict is: nerds only or skip a lot.
What did God teach me this week? He taught me I still try to handle far too much on my own. He showed me that perhaps ‘the way we’ve always done things’ may not be the best, most effective way.
