however i am not happy about all the reading of the HOLY BIBLE that I have to do today. Jeremiah. Thanks. I think we are reading Ezekiel too. Both are a lot of fun, if I remember correctly, but I may feel differently when I dive in. Isaiah was not what I remember at all, expect for a couple of chapters.
I read from the FIRST LETTER OF JOHN in church yesterday. I had to super prepare because the language was super trippy. I basically highlighted words for emphasis. But I felt weird with all these people telling me how much they loved my reading. this goes back to growing up in church and the battle over whether to clap after someone sang or to keep a reverent silence. It was generally reverent silence. Someone pointed out the JOYFUL NOISE thing a couple of times, but silence wow out. I played the piano for my church and I probably felt the same way then about compliments about my playing, which i got ALL the time, though I don't remember exactly. Maybe I felt weird and loved it too, which is how I felt yesterday. Squirmy, but yes I'm glad you love me so much. And I am HOLIER THAN THOU. I didn't take any money for my "job." And I've decided that whatever classes or work I do for Grace, I will not take any monies.
so i need to get to reading. and to try not to check my email every few seconds to check out whether or not I'm famous yet.
