I wanted to take a minute to encourage anyone with time and an interest to checkout today's My Utmost for His Highest daily devotion for today (click here). It was one of those "Now Words" for me when I read it this morning, a word from God for my present circumstances. It's about peace and looking into the undisturbed face of Jesus and finding no reason to fret. It's exactly what I needed to read today and it drove me to my knees. I need Jesus. I need his peace.
I have been reading My Utmost For His Highest for years, though I have it in the original version and the online version is in updated language. While the website is easier to understand, I must say that some of the beautiful poetic language Mr Chambers used is lost. He was very direct, and somehow the newer language is softened and less powerful. Still, it hits home. I encourage you to bookmark the site if you don't own the book and read the daily devotions there. The link is in the "Escapes from Crazyville" section of our sidebar.
In other news, today is Hair Cut Day! I must say, I'm nervous. I stopped by the salon on Saturday and met the hairdresser who I've booked my appointment with; she seems confident that she can cut it the way I want. One thing I really like is that her own hair is straight and fine, and cut short in a very edgy way. That might help her to know my hair and what I'm going for.
I'll post pictures later! I'll be getting it cut at about 4 am Oregon time, while Heather's snoozing. I'll try to get a picture up my mid-afternoon.
