Just read through Open Book (A. W.'s blog) and wondered how does she write so much so early on a Sunday morning. She doesn't live that far east that she has had so many more hours of sunshine. but there it was, at least 7, maybe 10 entries. Each one of them with links and clues that she's been all over the internet reading this and that on current issues.

Meanwhile, I read her blog and wondered--where does the time go?

I emptied my hotmail-box from 4 pages to 1 page of mail. Ahhh...there's satisfaction is that completed task. Printed out and filed important pieces for business records, etc. Wrote a long overdue reply to one email. And now i'll turn to the tasks at hand for final's week....papers, presentations, and exams. The sun shines invitingly outside the window, but the thermometer warns me to stay inside and get the work finished. Time to play another day. Time to blog another day, too.

"Look I am going to make something new. Do you see what it is?" (Isaiah 40)

At every moment God is making something new. The renewal is ongoing before we can imagine it. God's present moment is inconceivable to our human perceptions. Each breath i take, and each beat of my heart is new. The breath of God permeates every cell and atom in the universe. Each one made new over and over again. Nothing remains the same.

Sameness is comfortable and that is why God's ways are often uncomfortable for me. God's ways seem comfortable on occassion because i perceive them as familiar, but they are not the same. I try to recognize the new and the change at each moment. My awarenes that now there is something new helps me perceive it, but i am not always in an awareness mode. More often I am in a past tense or future mode. Awareness is being present to the sparks of the new that God makes and remakes.
