Laura and I are at the San Jose airport now, waiting to fly back to Louisville by way of Chicago. It was a great, fast-paced, relaxing and draining weekend at home.
I watched my beautiful baby sister graduate from high school.
We spent not-enough time with family or friends, though the three or so days of time together was better than nothing or just email or phone talk.
I noticed again how my own problems follow me because they come from within me. Being short or impatient, crude or harsh with my jesting, or lazy or bitter or self-focused–these are all dwelling within me. I brought them to California and I am taking them back to Kentucky.
It has been a great and grace-filled weekend with a lot of laughing and a fair dose of crying. I am so grateful for the family and friends here who could never be replaced and who the Lord still uses to shape me.
