Friday, September 16, 2011Friday Five: Seeking What?
Jan is making us use our thinking caps: I was struck in our weekly Lectio Divina group by a few verses from Psalm 105:3-4:
. . . let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually.
Seeking is rejoicing. Rejoicing comes from the seeking, NOT the end of glory, heaven, enlightenment, or whatever. Seeking is the journey--RIGHT NOW!
So for this Friday Five, list what you are seeking, whether it is trivial, profound, or ordinary--whatever you would like to share! List 5 and add a bonus if you feel like it!
2. Activity: I am way too restless to sit at home in front of my computer everyday. Retirement can't be this boring! I am starting to teach a bible study in my parish on Wednesdays so that will get me out of the house. The diocesan properties are still hung up in court so I don't know when I will have a parish again. It has been too hot to walk until yesterday. Today it is cool again too. Perhaps I can get out and walk a bit this morning. Now I understand what my mother said when my dad retired: "I married him for better and for worse, but not for lunch!"
5. A good recipe for Beef Bourguignon: I have a couple of recipes that require lard or other such vein clogging ingredients. Anybody out there got one?
