Did you ever have fear?
Did you ever have fear of something happening . . . and then it did?
Not long before the beginning of this magnificent time of sabbatical made possible by St. Andrew UCC and the Lilly Endowment, Patricia and I and a couple of others had lunch with a St. A member in St. Petersburg whose name is Virginia.
Post-lunch, we were all in the car, and I was pulling out of the lot, when our waiter appeared at the window of the car waving a camera and asking, “Is this yours?”
It was mine.
I had taken a few pictures at lunch and then left the camera on the table.
What a great wait person!
From that day onward I have had a small fear that I would lose the NEX somewhere.
It happened a couple nights ago.
Here at this house.
Perhaps the camera will yet be found.
I hope so.
In the mean time I took a few pics from my iPhone . . . they aren’t very good . . . but here they are to let you know we are well.
I do still hope to find the camera somewhere.
I am very sad.
I am very happy,
to be here with family by the the great Lake Superior.
It is beautiful!
Ahhh, the contradictions . . .
May you know the love of God tonight, wherever you are, under the beam of an almost full moon.
May cool waters invigorate you.
May life’s contradictions, like sadness and happiness, be woven boldly in the fabric of who you are.
May the lost be found.
