As Jesus said, those who follow him will have a hundred times as many homes, sisters, etc.
I returned home to Chicago from home (New Orleans) yesterday and found that my sisters here had thoughtfully put aside for me each week's food section from the Chicago Tribune! In fact, when I arrived, I went to get something to drink and looked over Wednesday's paper in search of my favorite weekly section, and was mystified by its absence! When I went to my room, I found a little stack, 6 weeks' worth, waiting for me.
Also waiting for me, of course, is a 6 week backlog of mail and follow-up. I am trying not to panic, but to address things one at a time, while simultaneously preparing for my talk in Toronto in two weeks' time...
Prayers needed all around!
