None of the children are sleeping any more, at night. Even the baby, our best sleeper, was up much of the night. Elphine has been sleeping on a mattress at the end of our bed, and Romulus in our bed, without exception, breaking our hard and fast rule of NO Children in Bed, only a few cats. So we're all a little tired and raw today, and facing a serious bout of cleaning before we can start filling boxes.
Yesterday was like so much of the Christian life-rich, heartbreaking, beautiful, painful. It was hard to find someone who wasn't crying, but the service was probably our best yet, in that building, apart from the Pageant and the last Easter Vigil. Micah switched music around, we managed to organize incense in the ten minutes before the service started, Matt preached the best sermon that I have ever heard, I could go on and on.
I would go on to say a lot more but everybody else needs attention.
