I’m glad to be home. In the last six days I have spent 13 hours driving. This is rather unusual for me as a lot of weeks I don’t drive at all. I’m fortunate enough to be able to walk to work.

I had a very enjoyable time at ladies retreat. The theme was, “Journey with God” and we spent time thinking about our spiritual journeys. As I reflected on mine, I was encouraged by God’s provision and faithfulness to me over many years. It spurred me on to believe God for the future.

Today was also Election Day. In Australia we have compulsory voting. Some Americans, I know, find it odd that we make people vote. However we really don’t…we only make people turn up at a polling booth and have their name crossed off. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say we have, compulsory showing up days!
