It’s been an awfully long time since I’d done what I did tonight and it was both a GoodThing and, in its own way, potentially… a less-than-good thing.
I’ll tell you about it in…
- Tonight I crashed into bed sometime between 9 and 9:30pm. It was a teaching day in Angers and my last teaching day there before their week-long vacation next week (maybe that explains their lack of focus). In any case, I must’ve been more tired than I thought because I didn’t even have coffee once I got home! (The less-than-good thing is that I was wide awake at 1:30am… which is when I’m writing this).
- On my way to Angers today, I had a bit of time and tried out a new section of road that I’d never taken before. It led me into downtown Montreuil-Bellay (I usually take the by-pass road) where I stopped for a few minutes to snap a couple of pics of the castle. There’s been a lot of rain lately so Le Thouet River was bulging & roaring!
- Lastly for today… Since I arrived a bit early in Angers, I had a chance to speak with one of the other teachers one-on-one. It was nice. I have an easier time that way than I do in a group, where I tend to do more listening (it’s an introvert thing). An Englishman who’s been in France longer than I have, he had some good insights on working here & wading through the administrative red-tape.
- Today… an extra one for good measure: One of the young men in church had a decisive meeting this morning and asked me to keep it in prayer. I heard from him later in the day and, with an enormous sense of relief, he indicated that the Lord had made all things work out for good!
