Hmmm. I don't know, I don't know, I don't know. (I'll decide before I post this, though!)
This morning I got out a little blank book and wrote down the names of my "children" (Alex, Alisha, Kael), Linden's children, and Diana's crew. And I prayed for them, each one, by name and for specific things if I knew of them. Maybe this is what I'm supposed to be -- a prayer warrior for children (most of the children on that list are grown, so I don't mean that from an age perspective!). Let me know if I can add your children to my list.
Okay, I have to get a move on. I've got my final physical therapy appointment in two hours; I have not exercised since my last appointment when I hurt my back. The back is all better -- 100% -- so I need to get back in the saddle. My knee replacement surgery is scheduled for six weeks from today, so there's plenty of time. (I don't think I need to do these exercises at all, actually. My legs are strong; I just have rotten knees. But I will do them anyway.)
I'm going to read Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel. I read her book, Longitude, a million years ago and absolutely loved it. Galileo's Daughter is based on the letters of Galileo's illegitimate daughter, a cloistered nun. This is a book that was recommended to me by my friend Denise, so it is the ninth book I will read from that list (my goal is to read ten books recommended by friends). And -- I actually own a copy that I bought years ago intending to read. So there you go. :)
