I am run-over-by-a-truck tired.
I have a cold.
I got a couple of movies.
Bill's at the brother's meeting.
Kids are in bed.
I wish I could be creative.
I might try after a bath.
A bath makes a lot of difference in one's outlook.
So anyway, I did this page. I "shopped" the photo, and thought the result was pretty good. It reminded me that I am someone who is part of two realms. And look at what the eternal portion is- light and sight.
The time portion? Kinda splotchy, except for the eyes, which retain the light of eternity- the sight of Jesus Christ in all things! A reminder that I am "made for another world" (CS Lewis)
I read that excerpt from the book Child of the Sea and it rang so true, as much of her writing does. Since you probably can't read it, and I want you to, here it is:
I try to hear the echo of a song they have brought from far and sing within themselves all the while they chatter nonsense, and to catch on their faces a glimpse of what they will be at their journeys end. Sometimes on first waking I have found myself with a singing rising up all round me but before I have understood the words the thread has broken and it has vanished. And that glimpse, it comes like light on a face and then it is gone, but if you have once seen it I do not think you could ever dislike the face it visited; not even if that face afterwards became evil. I think that evil is not immortal but that the light is.
