I fell asleep sitting up in the middle of my prayers on Tuesday. I think it is the time of year to be settling into darkness.

Thanks for sharing that Vinita - really resonates - weariness is like grief - never made that connection.

As we age, is it just my imagination or does time (days, weeks, months) whirl past us like the scenery from a runaway train? I can't seem to catch up with myself, but when I occasionally do, I'm only grabbing a skirt tail. I do not want to stand before our Lord someday and have Him tapping His foot as he asks, "So, what did you do with all those days I gave you?" How do we slow it down? Have we lost the art of 'savoring'? We seem to jump from appointment to appointment, day to day, month to month like AD children on a monkeybar. I want to stop it, but seem powerless to do so...inspite of my good intentions.

      This is my husband's site. As a professional photographer he's done all kinds of work, but I really enjoy the images he's capturing these days. Order cards or prints from him.

    Books, Movies, Music

    • PBS Masterpiece series Cranford
      This is my new (well, new to me) favorite miniseries. Lovely, funny, heartbreaking. Made to go with a pot of strong tea and hankies with lace.
    • Rambling Rose
      I don't think there was much buzz about this 1991 movie, but I like it so much I own a copy. There's so much grace in this story, and Diane Ladd delivers one of my favorite movie speeches of all time, toward the end of the film (she and Robert Duvall, her husband, are in the doctor's office).
    • Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God
      This is a short, readable, and powerful book. I'm on my way to read Bourgeault's other works. This one encouraged me and gave me a boost of desire for that quiet place with God.
