in my life: yes, that was a direct quote from Les Miz, because--"in my life, there are so many questions unanswered that somehow seem wrong." sometimes the most beautiful becomes but a memory--sometimes the biggest blessings become a curse. but God is GOOD. i'm looking forward to a bright, new season of friendship, faith, and days full of HIS plans. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD. Pslam 31:24

in my day: nannying. the face of my favorite baby, now crawling like a pro--cute, chubbly, and smiling. later there will be tomato bisque with pasta and shrimp. just about perfect, light, and exactly what i want on a semi-gloomy spring day. oh, and Fairest will be waiting with my lazy boy chair after showering tonight. bliss.

in my mind: memories of friends--this month has been BUSY. one of the busiest in the last couple of years, with visitors almost every week, events, and constant activity. i think. . .my family should open a bed and breakfast. ;)

in my ears: a quiet house. . .just me and Anna up as we prepare for work (nannying). soft bird call. the quiet hum of cars on the main road. my typing fingers.

in my eyes: our Japanese cherry blossom tree; still pink, but slowly losing it's springtime gown to it's maroon -colored leaves.

in my future: a summer-full of places to go, things to see, movies to work on, people to meet, and new hope. "There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind." C.S. Lewis

in the things i currently love: countless, lazy hours in a coffee shop. the Psalms. mocha's. simple lunches of cheese, crackers, and veggies. wearing my hair fuss-free and straight. classic Disney movies. C.S. Lewis quotes. homemade mac 'in cheese. cardinals. pink oxford-flats. "Fred", my owl necklace. new bedspreads. maxi skirts. talks with mom. "All I Have is Christ." the forgiveness of God.

"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different. . ."  C.S. Lewis


  1. So happy for how the Lord has been working in you, giving you such joy in the day-to-day. As I find myself so extremely busy right now setting up a new home, it is those little things like the birds singing outside my windows that brings the smiles and the life-is-so-worth-while.

    Love to you, my friend!
