Jesus Army Life, Day 40: Joy and pain

As expected the time with my brother and sister-in-law went well. Several people were away at lunchtime but that made conversation at the table a little easier. We went out to Coombe Abbey afterwards. I'd forgotten how beautiful the area was.

The great day was tainted however by an argument I had with a Christian brother late in the evening. It really was too late and I lost my cool, but there were apologies before "the sun went down."

The next day was church. The same brother impressed me by giving some thought to what I'd said. Nonetheless there are some bridges to rebuild now. Sigh.
