33

We sold our Hyattsville house with Ted's repairs and new siding,
left the place I'd lived longest so far; moved to Virginia,
Ted's new Capax sales territory, bought a townhouse in Burke
where Dad was church planting, Mom or Gram glad to be with Jean
while I subbed at Lake Braddock High School and followed
Joyce and Mom doing Association for Public Justice mailings.
Duff and Rhonda were in public school:
no more daily carpools but church commute time doubled.

Two or three mile early morning runs fused my body/mind/spirit.
Praying the Psalm verse "Bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me" I wrote 
"Counsel me now as I seek a mission and a community."
Graham Pulkingham's books and a New Testament class 
with Margery Bankson at Church of the Savior fired me up.
