i am a lone tonight….not lonely, just a lone. it is cold in the house because of the weather, but my stove is on and there is tea to drink. music is playing and i have been baking for a girl’s retreat. my sam is gone, my children are away, and i have very few friends. there is no one to call and no one will call on me. but in this aloneness i am able to concentrate and listen for Christ. so many days lately He has fed me with such words and thoughts and just knowing He is here ~ i am never a lone. and in this i am learning to be content and to understand joy. grace and peace to each one of you.
