a still memory.



"Before the winds that blow do cease,
teach me to dwell within Thy calm:
Before the pain has passed in peace, give me,
my God, to sing a psalm.
Let me not lose the chance to prove
the fullness of enabling love.
O Love of God, do this for me:
maintain a constant victory."

{Amy Carmichael}

perfect weather for my mood.
stormy. wanting to curl up with soft
blankets and will the day away.
truth be told.

i came across something from 2008..
seven plus years hence.
my daughter resting on my shoulder.
the memory was saved in picture form...
i remember this moment as if it were
today and the emotions overwhelm ~
thankful to have had a lovely life with her ..
sorrowful over its loss. 
blessed by His presence in the still of life.

  5. Thinking of you on this very grey Kansas day where the skies are waiting to cry tears of wetness causing the roads to go slick. Dear One, I cannot even begin to know what you have experienced with the loss of your sweet daughter. I pray that there will be healing in your land and she will return to you.
