lucky

I'm staying at my aunt and uncle's house over the next few days to look after their dog, get the mail, etc. I wouldn't normally consider sojourning in Baltimore City a retreat, but for me, getting away from my usual surroundings and spending a little time in quiet will be nice. (I decided on giving up television, well watching TV alone, for Lent.)

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, for me it's been difficult to sit back and consider my past and its details. How many of my choices have been made without hesitating, without thinking twice? Hopefully the next few days will be filled with margin for me, and I'll be able to get a better idea of what my story looks, sounds, and feels like.

Tonight, I just thank God for his goodness and grace that allows me to feel safe and secure and for the freedom to think about these things.
