Isaiah 65
Once again the click of black dress shoes on the floor breaks the silence in my office just before midnight. 
Once again the bag goes on the floor, the Blackberry on the desk, and the boarding passes folded in my coat pocket go in the wire trash can in the corner. All is well... 
And once again I first drift off to sleep, and then wake up again, exceedingly happy... 
Because I have seen salvation come... 
I have watched cheeks first pale, then glow. 
I have watched empty eyes fill with tears of hope. 
I have watched faces turn to the sun like flowers on a spring morning.

Ahh yes, this is happiness.
And the fact that it is my happiness, is a gift of grace undeserved...
"Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart..." Isaiah 65:14
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil... [Jn. 17]
