I am cleaning out my office. Well, to be truthful, I am gathering all the junk I can find and throwing it in the middle of the office. Mind you that my office is the size of a bathroom. Not one of those with a huge garden tub, but just a very normal bathroom. Which means that my big pile of junk makes it impossible to get to and frow in here.
But, it's almost a new year. Here at work I have a new semester to think about. I will have some former students and a few new ones. I'll have some former classes and a new one or two. I will have some former co-workers, and a new one as well.
So, it seems right to clean up and clean out my space. And it seems right to pray as I do it... pray for wisdom and the fruit of the spirit. Pray for these students, classes and co-workers. Pray for my first full year of marriage and of living in Austin.
And I will be hibernating myself these two weeks... growing roots of prayer so that when the light hits in a couple of weeks, we'll all be ready to see what God is going to grow in us.
