I spent the past few days in North Carolina visiting my Mom.
Good food. Good conversation. Good sleep.
It’s amazing how — at 30 — I’m beginning to enjoy the relationship with my Mom more than ever. There’s a mutual respect for life experience. She asks for my advice and I do the same.
Only now, I’m willing to listen a little bit more.
Over coffee this morning, I came across the following few verses that seemed to deeply resonate.
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” - 90:12
“Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” - 90:14
“May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us — yes, establish the work of our hands.” - 90:17
I love the sense of abandon in each of these.
It’s a reluctance to control.
It’s an abiding knowledge Someone Else is at the wheel.
Currently among my favorites.
Valentine’s Day fun. You can find more of these on my Facebook page.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. Sorry.
I’ve been a little busy recently. It’s not an excuse, just a fact.
Truth be told, I’m trying to get better at this Blogging thing. My history is a spotty-at-best one.
I’ve tried the WordPress thing for a while now, and I’ll continue to write there from time to time, but I think I like Tumblr a little better for day to day stuff.
It’s just a little easier. And it seems to fit my ADD tendencies a little better.
Also, it seems it’s a place to collect a little bit of everything I like that’s out there. So here’s to new posts and a growing collection of stuff I like.
Someday it’ll be fun to look back at this and laugh.
And here’s to more of that.
Missing Colorado today.
