Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Monday, August 16, 2004


Yestrday was a marvelous day: my niece (and now goddaughter) was baptized, "received into the household of God," (the local Lutheran branch of the Christian family tree). And we celebrated in typical family fashion, with too much food, and kids running around everywhere, and teasing over subjects old and new, and lots of laughter.

Today, we rest up and hang out, before heading home. I am currently sitting in the World's Most Comfortable Chair, looking out a big picture window at a lake view, framed by ancient oak trees. Yesterday, the lake was busy: boaters, waterskiiers and tubers, and Ski-doo riders skating across the water. Today, most of the folks who live here are back to work, so the activity is limited to some skittering chipmunks, a few birds flitting back and forth, and the occasional leaping fish.

And now, after some morning showers, the sun is coming out.

I could get used to this.
