There are definitely matters that are grieving my heart.
The violence in london, the ongoing strife in the Middle East. George W. Bush getting to select a new Supreme Court Justice. For that matter, George W. Bush himself.
Missing friends and family.
But I have to admit that the sum of our life here is lovely: this dog that I have already fallen madly in love with + his church that is greeting us with extravagant hospitality and hope + this house that is becoming a home + this darling husband of nearly three years = exquisite happiness.
