“This morning, like the past several weeks, I’ve been out running before sunrise. Time permitting I’ve been reading a chapter or two from your book when I get back. I was going to text you this morning just to say Hi and wish you an encouraged and wonderful day but then one text message turned into two and since it was before 7 it seemed best to reconfigure the medium of communication and send it a little less indirect so you could look at it when both your eyes were fully open and you had consumed your morning beverage of choice (oj,tea,coffee).
The book is continuing to be a good read for me and from one single person to another a lot of what you say testifies to what is in my heart or the Lord is revealing to me about myself. On the other hand, there is a whole different list of ideas I look forward to discussing with you because for every thought that makes me want to say “Yaw, Heay Der I Know Watcha Mean, Yeah, Eh?” (I think that is Yooper for “Say it loud sista”) there is another thought that seems foreign to me. Anyway, that is a conversation that I look forward to at another time.!”
