the time is ripe

The strawberries are coming in, so it's getting busy around here. Heather and some friends made jam the other day. There's also the big conference this weekend with lots of people already here, setting up for it.

Then, yesterday, I got a note from the folks at Emmaus Ministries and they want to come for a retreat in a month. Wow, great. Except that we're short a guest room, three beds, and our dining table and chairs (on loan) are supposed to go away in two weeks. I'd really like to do it, though. Something to pray about.
