I am feeling much better today. I even put on a short sleeved shirt today, in order to enjoy some of the wonderful weather we are having here in Los Angeles this week. Yesterday, I mostly rested. This is usually the most effective remedy when my body gets sick. And it seems to have worked again. And it happened in good timing, I might add. I have quite a busy weekend ahead of me. Today, I have a couple of writing assignments to finish and some pastoral care updates to make. I also have to finish my preparation for my sermon and Sunday School lesson. I also have a leadership meeting Sunday afternoon after church to prepare for. Likewise, I am scheduled to preach this evening at the Redeemer Baptist Church here in LA, for the pastoral anniversary celebration of Pastor Curtis Monroe. I don’t know Pastor Monroe too well, but he is family. My nephew Louis and his daughter shereece have been married for several years now. Interestingly, my nephew’s last name is also Monroe. Divine providence must have a sense of humor. I am determined to get as much of my work done today as possible, so I won’t have much to do tomorrow. Saturday is my birthday. I will be 33 years-old, God willing. Praise the Lord for his steadfast love, his sustaining grace, and his sparing mercy!
