Tuesday’s Ministry

Today’s meeting with pastors was a delight. It started, like most days, with a visit the office to catch up on email and to post updates on the blog. Thankfully, the office is located every two blocks, as pictured below.

Angela returned home last night. A week away from the kids was long enough. Thankfully, she didn’t get bumped from the flight as she did on her trip here. She called this morning having received hugs and kisses from three excited little boys.


In the evening before the sunset, looking out from the top of Mount Soledad (pictured below), I read Psalm 121, thanking God for his sovereign grace:

“I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot slip– he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you– the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm– he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
