I feel so honored, Marla. Let me tell you: I think of you as someone who is tough, loyal, and very loving. I am really happy to have words that you can receive without armor. And I am grateful for your support.

I so understand this. There are mornings when I get up and I just want to tell God and the world to leave me the F alone. Then I remember I have a devotional to write. I have tried to wrap my head around the idea that my writing some days is a sacrifice to the Lord.

You are relentless, Scott. I would never imagine that you had days of inertia! I admire your faithful flow of curiosity.

Happy, happy birthday, sweet friend! I hope it's a wonderful day!!! Please give your family hugs from me, and hopefully their hugs back will suffice (more than) since I'm not there in person to hug you. :-)
