1) Candlelight coffee and devotional in the parlor. C.S. Lewis makes me mad today. “When the event you pray for occurs, your prayer has always contributed to it. When the opposite event occurs, your prayer has never been ignored; it has been considered and refused, for your ultimate good and the good of the whole universe. (For example, because it is better for you and for everyone else in the long run that other people, including wicked ones, should exercise free will than that you should be protected from cruelty or treachery by turning the human race into automata.)” Dammit, I am still going to pray for the repentance of despots and tyrants!
2) Two months left of the year. My thoughts fly so many places this morning.
3) Ritual. Color. A progression of color. Coffee.
