Good Friday

It’s Good Friday and I was astounded to discover that it is not a holiday in the US and that the good folk here still get up and go to work. I guess they ¬†figure that Christ did his greatest work on this day and so should they…

Personally I’m having a holiday; I need a day to plan, pray, strategize and breathe. I have new accommodation in downtown LA, an apartment in Little Korea that I am house sitting for a friend of a friend. Much to my relief she has no house plants or animals so that equates to zero responsibility.

Shifting around all the time has made me realize how important it is for me to have my own space in the world, an anchor or home. I find it hard to maintain a routine or any form of self discipline without this space; to have a whole apartment to myself really is a gift from God this Easter.
