As you have probably inferred by the rate with which posts are going up, it's been an insanely busy week, mostly for the good. (There's probably some dissent on that last point here at Castle Secondmost, owing to the fact that I've not been home in time to cook dinner several evenings.)
But I'm getting a bit of a breather today, or at least some time to get caught up on chores and such. I couldn't possibly recommend more highly the experience of grocery shopping during a minor but flashy Saturday morning snowfall. I could have been bowling in the aisles, and probably would have knocked over exactly as many pins as I would in a real bowling alley. Projectile-based recreation and I have never really gotten along.
If I had to boil down the essence of what I learned this week, it is this: God doesn't close a door without opening a window. With any luck, He thinks highly enough of you to make it a ground-floor window.
