Mountain Midnight Musings

I was thinking while we were in the mountains for my girl's birthday how surreal everything seemed. To be the most alive, the moments almost don't even seem to exist. In the mornings, I would turn to the sunrise and say my prayers to God; eyes closed, warm rays on my face, nothing else quantifies. Simplicities, in measures beyond comprehension, yet more complex than I will ever fully understand. The surreality of the moments that make up this life take me far from myself, toss me beneath the wings of Glory and I find myself caught in the currents, blasting forth transient flickers of self; past, present and future, as though only one was in existence.

What a time, place and person to be! Lord have Mercy that my lessons be swift and purposeful, with a gratefulness to follow.

From Deb, who is sitting on her porch looking at the mountains all around her, breathing the fresh mountain air and soaking in the glorious morning sunlight.....

Martha- Thanks for the birthday wishes! We just started today with any formal schooling and there were a few glitches, but worked through them. I like how you take pictures and I think I am going to incorporate pictures into our schooling, like taking a picture on the same day of the week throughout the year and we will watch the seasons change and Katherine grow :o)

Deb- In no particular order; Church, mortgage, kung fu and tai ji, um, random blizzards that would lock us down....hmm, I will see if I can think of more...but I do wish we were closer!
