BEAUTY RECAPTURED

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. RWE

Sables and wine till the end of time
oh you give me much more than that
Diamond rings and beautiful things
oh you give me much more than that
when you smile.

—Ingrid Michaelson

Because He sustains me

A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.”

But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory,
the One who lifts my head high.
I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.

I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side.

Arise, Lord !
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.

From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.

Psalm 3 NIV

Always

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Thank You Jesus for Finnegan’s chocolate cream pie and peppermint tea, for evenings like this that end with tears and with what feels like endless amounts of love. I don’t know how You do it but it never stops being poured over me or into my own heart. These days are long and hard, even though to others they probably don’t appear so; but I thank you for this season You’re walking through with me.

Because healing and growth take so much time, and that’s what we’re working towards; I’ll never let go of your hand. Be at peace, darling. Remember that His true children share His heart… and that life is so beautiful, especially and particularly together. 

I don’t know how to write anything else, how to explain any of it, how to write about it here. 

Because tonight I’m in love and I want to write but I don’t have words beautiful enough to do any of this justice.

Because tonight I’m in love and I want to write but I don’t have words beautiful enough to do any of this justice.

Good point Jon.

"Instead let there be a flood of justice—an endless procession of righteous living—instead of a show…I hate all your show."
