I’m writing this from my hotel lobby in Brea, CA.

I spoke this morning in San Clemente, at the Shoreline Church, where not only the women but also two of the pastors had read and enjoyed my books.

I arrived in LA yesterday, and had plenty of time for a jog on the beach, and a lovely time driving down U.S. Rt. 1.

Being in beautiful places renews my soul. I’ll post photos when I return.

I have to speak tomorrow again (in Yorba Linda in the morning, at a retreat in the evening) and three times on Sat., once on Sunday.

I’d appreciate your prayers. I want to be effective not just at speaking, but at listening. But the beach time has filled my soul, and I’m ready to pour out all that God’s put on my heart.
