On this Night





“… you are a chosen race,
a royal priesthood,
a holy nation,
a people for God’s own possession,
so that you may proclaim the excellence
 of Him who has called you
 out of darkness into His marvelous light;
for you once were not a people,
but now you are the people of God;
you had not received mercy,
but now you have received mercy.

Perception vs Reality


I live in a world of expectations.  How life is going to be.  What my day will be like.  What time I will get up in the morning.  How much time on the piano I will have this afternoon.  That I will take a walk today.  That I will get my devotions done before anything else happens.  That I will have a long fuse with my siblings instead of blowing up in their faces at the first offense.   That I will dress fashionably and femininely every day.
The list goes on.

Lament for Marius

Oh Marius...
how could you do this to me?
We were so close,
the dearest of friends,
comrades.
Daily rendezvous.
Sweet times.

Enchanted Days...


Browsing old pictures...
Pictures from an autumn about ten years ago.
Wondering at how strange,
distant,
it feels.
Like, perhaps, I dreamt those years
and days
of enchantment.

On this Friday Morning...



Taken several years ago... we had beautiful wooded trails
down the road from where we used to live.

I am
*tired*,
but happy.

Jessie and Mom
left yesterday morning
for a mother/daughter
getaway.
So, Natalie, Dad, and I
have been
running the household.

Coffee Day...

I confess...
I have them.
*sigh of pleasure*
Coffee days...


Found at a gas station on a roadtrip... I was instantly in love!

The Lady in the Red Coat


This coat was given to my family months ago...
It was a 2x then.
And I just couldn't let it go to waste.
