Timeless. Timely. On time. Out of time.
We're terrible timekeepers as creation goes. We lose track of it and wonder where it went. We're running late and spinning tales. We wipe our schedules clean to seize time or pack the calendar chock full, hoping to make the most of it. On our best days, we remember to capture an image or two to remind ourselves that moments did actually exist as we remember them.
I'm wishing you the most wonderful and peaceful Christmas yet! It's been an absolute joy growing and learning with all of you this year. I look forward to all that's yet to come in 2016.
In God and Gratitude,
My hair's tied up, the short sleeves are telling...the weather may be crazy, but the fact remains. Christmas is for everyone! Here's hoping we'll accept the simple gift of grace this year.
With you and for you,
Clark: Can I refill your eggnog?
Get you something to eat?
Drive you out to the middle of nowhere?
Leave you for dead?
Cousin Eddie: Oh, I'm doing just fine, Clark.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Eyes red and swollen, my little boy is exhausted. I kneel down as he climbs onto my back, two little arms and legs clinging tightly as I trudge up the stairs. I round the corner into his cool, dark room and set him clumsily on the mattress.
It's then that he bumps his knee on the bed frame, though I'm unaware. Before I know it, stuffed animals are flying past my head! I duck back and forth, finally splaying my body across his for a moment so we can talk.
"Don't do that, honey. If you're angry, you need to tell me with your words." I explain. He looks at me through teary big, brown eyes and says, "But you hurt me first, Mommy."
