i'm quiet lately, i know.
i'm stepping softly through my days and seeking to draw in as much peace as is possible. loss is felt deeply - and i don't imaging it ever ending. God has placed me (us) here for a purpose i don't understand. but we're not called to understand. we're called to trust Him in the unknowing. so i'm learning how to trust and apparently am not a student excelling in this particular field of study. truth be told.
focusing on beauty in the ordinary...
i see tone and texture in a sink full of morning suds,
and the sensation of hands dipped..
a filthy kitchen window and vine beyond,
graced by a jug of prepped tea for the afternoon heat.
appreciating the vantage point of pattern..
and filtered sunlight..
and an old pew needing renewal..
much like my heart at present.
comfort food tonight..
sweet potato & russet hash
with bacon, peppers, onions ..
and an egg over medium on top.
tomato slices and avocado
on the side.
