Double scheduled, over scheduled & thinking about our water-logged ceiling shook me awake today. Maybe King David had insomnia, too- he said he would not rest until he found a dwelling place for the Lord (Psalm 132). When he found it he said, “Arise oh Lord, and come to your resting place (place of quietness)”. So the question is, have I found a dwelling place for the Lord in my heart-a place of quietness for Him? Lord, may I quiet my heart, that You may find a resting place there. “Be still and know that I am God”. Shucks, I feel better already!

Laura Cowan is a PMS survivor, along with her husband John, and their eight children. She adores her pastor who has counseled her through 44 years of marriage to himself. Together they enjoy quiet walks on the beach...Ha! Who are we kidding? We live on the backside of the desert. Thankfully, a very lovable flock of sheep live there, too, and let us pastor them (Calvary Chapel Bishop, California). Also, we spend a lot of time eating tiny bags of peanuts and missing connecting flights as missionaries with Poimen Ministries, whose goal is to encourage, aid, and support pastors, churches, and missionaries throughout non-larva eating parts of the world, mostly. Laura's most impressive identity rests in being a full-time beggar for grace. Not that Jesus makes her beg, it's just she’s such a piece of work. She’s managed to turn all this into fodder for conference themes and teaching in a variety of venues. Laura has published blurbs for the Chicago Sun, Sacramento Bee, and a few obscure magazines.
