Sunday, the Lord’s Day, has become the very best day of my week. At the beginning of the week I look back at the previous one and remember; towards the end of the week I look forward in anticipation. It is the tent post which anchors the flapping canvas of my life.
The sermon this week was on Micah 6:8 and the three things the Lord requires: to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God. Our pastor quoted Jeremy Taylor who said, “God threatens terrible things if we won’t be happy.” Are you familiar with Jeremy Taylor? I recognize his name only from quotes I’ve seen.
After services our people migrated to a restaurant which has closed until the tourists come back in May. We got to eat all their incredible leftovers: filet mignon, salmon, stuffed portobello mushrooms. We brought fresh salads, breads and desserts. We had our niece, Lea, with us for the day; Lea and I took turns snapping pictures of the beautiful surroundings. The restaurant sits by the rim of a deep canyon.
