About half way through. Interesting to note that when his friends come to comfort him, they sit quietly with him and say nothing, letting him speak first. And how usually, that is the most helpful thing of all, just being present. 2 years ago

Reading a chapter or two a night for Lent. Have had a couple of priests and some friends offer some insight. May go look today for a good commentary on Job. Wish there was a good not-conservativebaptist store to look in…. gah. Maybe the good independent bookstore will have something.
The Episcopal Cathedral bookstore has become more arts and stuff store and less book store. Which is highly disappointing. But then I guess they have to do what they need to do to stay in business. sigh. But in times like this, I could really use their old bookstore. 3 years ago
For the past 5 years it seems that every time I get to a place where I feel I start to be happy, something big happens to steal it. A priest friend asked me recently after the latest if I was feeling a little like Job and I burst into tears. I’d say that is a yes. I don’t remember what it feels like to be happy. I remember the day I was last happy. It was 3 years ago. I remember because it was the day everything shattered just after I was reveling in how enormously happy I felt. But I don’t remember what it felt like to sustain being happy. Mostly, I’m just here. Not depressed, just not happy and just surviving from one crisis to the next as best I can. So just suddenly it occurs to me maybe I should read Job. I’m not sure if I have ever sat down and read it all the way through. Or if I have, it has been a long long time. So, I will. Maybe I’ll get some insight. Or at least find a journey to relate to. 3 years ago
