-In my sermon this morning, I mentioned my glimpses of grace, which prompted a couple of women to come up to me after and share their recent "glimpses" with me. One woman spoke of the return of robins to Georgia, and how that's always a hopeful sign that Spring is near. I hadn't noticed them before, but when I went outside this afternoon, there were six of them playing in the grass.
-Having five great friends from seminary show up to hear me preach. It was such a comfort to see their faces smiling at me. This was the first time I've worn a robe and stole to preach, and it felt surreal and exciting.
-The buttery, melt-in-my-mouth pieces of avocado in my tortilla soup at lunch. It was warm and delicious--the perfect choice for such a frigid day.
