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.
Has done it again.
Love to the photoshop
Love to the quote
Love to the artist
feel better sweetie.
Oh toe-curlingly beautiful. Oh, such light on the face, and on a face in the photograph that is so very lovely, shining in the light of heaven.
Thanks dear. I too, have a never-ending cold, but enough of my mental resources at the ready to be able to appreciate the poem.
I so dig your page. And I hope you start feeling better real soon.
love it :)

Self promotion? Sarah, I have no idea what you mean.
