After lunch I went and fed my aunt's cats. Then I headed to Borders. I love bookstores! I hung out there for a couple of hours. Spent some sweet time in prayer. Last year I consistently prayed over a list of forty people everyday and had strayed from that towards the end of the year. I have written a new list and strive to everyday lift those people up to God. It has been a blessing to get back into the mindsight of how can I pray for this person right now and who in my life can I be praying for. I also browsed some memoirs for a bit. I think if books were drugs my drug of choice would be memoirs about absolutely anything. They get me hooked.
After Des Moines, I was able to hang out with my wonderful friend Sylvia! It was oh so wonderful! She is amazing and encourages me in so many ways. Then it was off to celebrate National Pancake Day! A friend of mine, Travis, made some delicious pancakes with an amazing assortment of toppings.
And now the day is almost done, but I will end it with a couple of episodes of Lost and then fall asleep and hopefully not have too many dreams about polar bears and a black smoke chasing me.
