VERY foggy here this morning, even this late in the morning. Not sure what that means, looks like a 1950's Hitchcock movie or something from the 1930's in the Scottish moors. We have leaves beginning to turn colors already. Soon enough, trees will be bare, and the whole region will look like Soviet-era Bulgaria or the like. I confess, it has a downward tug on my state of mind, not only during that period, but now, in the run-up (or run-down) to that time.
And, yet, no matter what, there is a better time coming. I'm somewhat infamous for having a song come into my mind, and be there for a day or so. Sometimes two in parallel, sometimes not, never more than two.
Here's number one for the day: Glorious Day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xODpgyqGCYM
And number two: Are You Washed?
The Old Testament reading today is chapters 7,8, and 9 of Ecclesiastes. Not light reading.
The New Testament passage for us is verses 1-15 of the 11th chapter in 2nd Corinthians.
II Corinthians 11:1-15
