It’s 10:30 in the evening, and the last of our guests has left. It has been the sort of day that makes us feel incredibly encouraged and fulfilled.

We left the house this morning at 8:00 to drive to Stockton. I have been filling in a little bit for the Central Church of Christ there, as they wait for their new minister to arrive in August.

Today I got to tell that church more of the LifeSpring story, and I was gratified by the number of people who said something about the sermon. It seemed to me that I struck a chord with them and perhaps inspired them.

At 6:00 tonight the interns from the Playhouse came over to our house for a party. There were 10 of us in all. Bev served up Mexican Hat, and we had a fun game of Cranium, Turbo Edition. We both feel so at home with this group, and tonight’s fun cemented the relationship further.

I have found my niche, and I can’t imagine doing anything but this. I’m going to bed with a great sense of satisfaction.
