a cold hard wind





it has been one of those days
reading
reading
some doing

a howling wind

lots of good advice
a pretty good novel
and then

what makes a good book?

tragedy for the protagonist
suffering
(sigh) so much like life
so much like Christ
crushing disappointment

"Come follow me."

feasting at His table
victory
no matter how beaten down
if only
we come
