Today will be the last sunny day here for a while. The forecast for tomorrow is a temperate 14°C, but there will be rain. My puppy will be thrilled. He loves to dig and paint the garden doors with muddy paws.

I'm thankful for my theology prof. He has taught me so much this year.
I'm thankful for sudden realizations that God has taught me something significant. I love those moments when I realize that I have not been my usual hard-headed self, and that the Spirit of God has wrought change in my heart.
I'm thankful for today's Ministry Leadership Day at my school. Tim Challies is speaking to us, and I hope to pick up a copy of his Visual Theology.
