I've been feeling it more lately than ever, but today I received unexpected encouragement. About a year ago, or so, I wrote a letter to Shane Claiborne (if you've been living under a rock and you don't know who Shane is, he's the author of a few books including Irresistible Revolution). Well, today I got a letter from him. Hand-written in the margins of a more generic typed letter, which is great on its own, are some words to which I'm sure I'll return again and again. Among them were these words:
"...keep living in the triumph of grace. Indeed mercy triumphs over judgement. Be free. Live with joy and winsomeness like the lilies and sparrows, my friend."
As I said, I received unexpected encouragement.

Amen to that. Hang in there, my friend.
What wonderful words! It is so good to be encouraged. :)
