…But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land: And the rest, some on boards & some on broken pieces of the ship.

Upon waking, I looked outside, it was all misty, very early before the neighbors stirred. You said, “walk in it.” You meant now, not after my usual coffee & devotions. A bit slowly, I pulled on some street clothes & went outside. We took the high road together. It was magical, quiet & warm, like a private space. Some blocks up, a deer was eating from a bush in a yard, we met eyes. Thank You for Your beauty & refreshing times, dear Lord.
