 Continue steadfastly in prayer,
being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 
At the same time, pray also for us,
that God may open to us a door for the word,
to declare the mystery of Christ…
that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak…
 making the best use of the time.
Let your speech always be gracious,
seasoned with salt,
so that you may know
how you ought to answer each person.
~ Colossians 4:2-6

The great thing is, if one can, to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions in one’s “own” or “real” life. The truth is, of course, that what one regards as interruptions are precisely one’s life. ~C.S.Lewis

I am a Wheel of Fortune rockstar.  Just in case you didn’t know that about me.

The end.

A little listen.

This was a good one.  Take a listen.

A little smallness.

February 22, 2009


Before we sleep we go out again into the night.  We walk up the beach under the stars.  And when we are tired of walking, we lie flat on the sand under a bowl of stars.  We feel stretched, expanded to take in their compass.  They pour into us until we are filled with stars, up to the brim.

This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy–even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.

Excerpt from Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

It is good to feel small sometimes.

P.S.  Read it.  I know you’ll like it.

My favorite.

This was my favorite day because I was at this concert with my favorite person and (amazingly) got to hear my favorite singer.

The song starts in the middle, so you’ll just have to buy it to hear the real deal.

XO, me

Happy heart day.
