Firecrackers, Tea and Loneliness

As I write this, the light from my bedside lamp is shining down on my computer, the fan is causing my hair to wave slightly, and my hands are shaking slightly from the all too keen sensation of pain.

Of all the days that I had to be up and going for more than 15 hours, the 4th was that day. Great worship, a wonderful sermon, and a sweet lunch with my family. That was great.
