I've been drafted to help "watch" the Little One today, heading over in a few moments.
We made it through yesterday, the loooong chain that started Sunday and went into the early afternoon yesterday. Somehow. Collapsed and about died in the later evening and shut the cats out of the bedroom to avoid the "let's use them as a racetrack" thing. But the 05:45 alarm prevailed. Dear Wife is next door with Little One and needs help because she's dragging already. So .....
Still seeing reports of the damage and destruction, injuries and loss of lives across the South. That came through areas we've either lived or worked in, or have friends of long standing who still do live and work there. So far as we know, they all made it through, though the margin was very small in several cases. This might be a good time to donate time and money to one of the several faith-based efforts, they're on the ground now helping.
All the below deserves more and better attention than I can give this morning, sorry.
The Old Testament reading is chapters 7 and 8 of the Exodus. Would you like to be called as Moses was? Well, you are called. Not for the same thing, but for something. Will you, will I, respond as well as he did?
The New Testament reading is chapter 17 in the Gospel of Matthew. The Transfiguration. One of those "I wish I had been there" moments.
