I have been busy with many things, including worrying about Ben, who lives north of Houston. He was trapped in the house, but took no damage. Today, however, he is out filming relief efforts, including a heartbreaking story of a woman who had four family members drown while she was out in the flood trying to help others. She will be asking for help, and his church is taking that on, apparently. His film is part of trying to make that happen. I think it may be mostly for his own congregation, though it may get wider play because of the need.
I actually worked all five days last week - unusual for me now - and have a lot to do around the house as well. Preparing for two football drafts have taken up time and energy as well, especially as the league rules are sharply different. The post prior to this was sitting in draft for two days - one sentence written - after being planned a week ago. I have another post, a book review, churning in my head, but I can't write it until well after it arrives as a birthday present. And there is another person in between my finishing the book and my mailing it off. It goes that way with the Wymans. If you receive a book for Christmas, it is likely that at least the giver, as well as 1-2 others, have read it before it got wrapped.
I have stopped following the news, and as CS Lewis noted, you don't miss anything, because so many people will make sure you hear it anyway.
