I ran at Clifton Gorge over the weekend. . .
Miles and miles of trails covered in crisp and colorful fall leaves.

And i had lunch with some beautiful and wise friends. And we talked for hours . . .

I baked a cake - lemon and coconut - and went thrifting with my mom. And i watched football with my dad.

And of course i played with our puppy, who wiggled all over when she saw me, and seemed genuinely sad when i left. Oh Sadie, dog.

"Waiting Room"
by Jonny Diaz

Here in this waiting room yearning for You to say go
And though I’m convinced that a yes would be best
This time You’re telling me no

It’s not that I don’t have an answer
It’s just not the one that I’d like
But through this time Lord I must keep in mind
You’re always wiser than I

You have a much better purpose
And You have a far greater plan
And You have a bigger perspective
Cause You hold this world in your hands

The things that I seek are from You
Like the strong healing touch of your hand
But when You say no help me trust even though
There’s a reason I can’t understand

When that miracle comes cause Your answer is yes
I will praise you for all of my days
But when Your wisdom declares that a no is best
I will praise You just the same
