Mr. Standfast

Just Dropping By

Summer has finally arrived. Hazy mornings. Hot, desultory afternoons. You get the feeling that the best thing you could do would be, well, nothing at all. Just moments ago a groundhog scampered beneath my kitchen windows, on his way to some juicy leaves in the neighbor's yard. Soon he'll go underground, keeping cool in the moist earth. Smart groundhog!

Later this week I'll be headed to Pennsylvania, to my mother's house, for about 5 days, and will be out of blogging-range. Respite, I think that's the "sonorous" word I'm looking for here.

Can you tell I've got very little to say this morning? I did want to thank Kim, however, she of The Upward Call, for her kinds words about Mr. Standfast (here). It really blessed me, Kim, and it showed me that Mr. Standfast is the kind of blog I'd intended it to be. Again, thanks very much.

Mr. Standfast is certainly the type of blog I enjoy visiting every day. Keep up the great work!

In His love,
