Long day today. I had a meeting with my boss this afternoon, which went on far longer than either of us intended, trying to sort out details about the new web site I’m developing. It all got rather confusing and complex and stressful, so I’m glad that’s over!
I went onto campus after that though, to relax in the chaplaincy. Ellie and I had dinner together and then went to Cell, which was quite challenging. All about the swing of life, going from quietly abiding in God, through a period of growth, to the other extreme of producing fruit, before being pruned and stripped back ready for another period of abiding. It was a challenge to realise that actually it’s all right sometime to not be producing fruit, and that sometimes it’s a necessary part of God’s plan that we are stripped back.
And now I’m really tired, so I shall probably get an early night.
