Truest Self

Profsler wrote today - "We are who we are, wherever we find ourselves, and those longings live very deep inside of us, calling out our truest name."

It has struck a cord even as I am in the busy midst of preparing for trial tomorrow. Yesterday the fam made it to church for the first time in months. It was so good in so many little ways. I long to return to my truest self, to be called by my truest name. The longing is all there is for now. But it is more than not longing at all.

Please keep calling, louder and stronger, Lord. I will follow the sound of your voice.

New School

E and CG are in a new school this year. We didn't move. We decided that the public school we are districted to is a better option for them than the private school we were in. This has proven to be true already. I am amazed at how superior it is academically to the "best" private school in Beaumont. Additionally, they are exposed to a MUCH more realistic cross section of our city (although still pretty white). All in all, very pleased. And the girls are adjusting well.
