Where your treasure is . . .

Tonight I (mostly jokingly) asked Michelle if I could spend a couple thousand dollars on the hot new paper-thin, light as a feather laptop that was unveiled today.

But as I reflect briefly before bedtime, I have a growing sense of uneasiness.  Here I sit in luxury, while Kenya, which has already lost somewhere around 700 lives due to violence in the wake of a disputed presidential election, is gripping for more.  I feel like I don’t even know how to pray . . . and yet I can’t not pray.  May this not be another Rwanda, another Darfur.  God have mercy on us all.
