"Mother Nature's Matinee"

I'm not nearly the Styx expert that Todd is, but this title seems an apt description of my trip home yesterday (even if it was evening instead of morning). Between the summer lightning flashing in the sky, and the untold numbers of fireflies sparkling in the grass along the expressway, it was a fascinating, amazing sight to behold. A dramatic end to my weekly "long day" down at St. Mary's.

A short synopsis:

-One shelter resident's paperwork filed with the local Welfare office, to begin the process of straightening out bolluxed-up benefits.

-One local woman taken to the doctor for necessary medical attention, and then welcomed into Grace House's kitchen, to take home some donated food for her family.

-One large project-- sorting and storing donated clothing-- organized and begun (the shelter residents should be able to complete this in the next few days).

-One interview with a local newspaper reporter.

-One thoroughly enjoyable Bible study, focused on the theme of persistence (see next Sunday's lectionary readings for details).

Never a dull moment in this business, is there?

Very good. Besides seeming appropriate for your day, I'm really impressed that you found that title.
