embrace it

embrace every season you walk in. whether it's
or full.
there is something to be acquired in each of them.
life would be boring without it's highs and lows.
without them life would not be lived.
without them life would be dead.

this week

i have been spending the last few days with this wee one......

she makes me laugh! today in the car i was singing quietly to a song and she asked if i was singing? i said yes, and she quickly replied, "well, i can't hear you. sing louder!" so, of course i did. i cannot sing but she didn't care one bit! we'll see how long that will last;)

anyway, i have had a fun time hanging with this sassy two year old.
i have definitely learned a thing or two about freedom because of her.....

ecclesiastes 8-11

“No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot really comprehend it……

The race is not for the swift or the battle for the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor for the learned; but time and chance happen to them all……

The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of the ruler of fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good.....

Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all of these things, God will bring you judgment. So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless….”

thought of the day

thought of the day:
i am entirely grateful for friends.
i've been sitting here at crema for the last four hours or so. my plan was to get some things accomplished but instead what was actually accomplished was what was really needed.....writing, reading, talking, and laughing A LOT, and doing all of this with my beautiful friend, emily barbee. we are also amped up on coffee which makes it all that much better.

it is really times like these, where breathing is easy, that life's stresses seem so very far away or at least very minute compared to the fullness of the happiness shared and experienced with a dear friend.

"I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." -Rainer Maria Rilke
