Morning has broken

It's no strange thing for me to suddenly fall in love with a hymn. One that's old, but new to me. One that maybe I'd heard before but holds new meaning in a more matured heart.

This week, that love of the old hymns resurfaced through none other than Cat Stevens.

You can't deny the beauty of this hymn (which pre-dates Stevens by a good four decades, by the way), no matter how unconventional the bearer here.

My iTunes was also graced with a few more hymns from a less unsuspecting group last week.

Tea time

(Disclaimer: this post will hereby serve as evidence for the extent of my boredom today. I literally have nothing better to do with myself than blog about crackers. Watch closely towards the end as I became self aware of how lame my day has been.) 

Today I had entirely too much time on my hands, so I decided to make a snack for tea. (For the purposes of this post, let's pretend that I regularly have tea at 3:00.)

I was also watching Doctor Who (The Lazarus Experiment) in which the Doctor expressed his love for horsderves, and I thought to myself, "I like those too, Doctor." So I made some.

Recipe per cracker includes (but is certainly not limited to):
1) a tiny little baby slice of avocado 2) a tiny little baby piece of tomato (some are Rotel)  3) a few tiny little baby pieces of shredded Colby Jack cheese 4) a few tiny little baby drops of hot sauce (from Taco Bell... They're just so sassy.)
Served with my current brand of spiced Chai, Stache. (I'm not too big a…


Here's the scripture that stood out to me most in my quiet time this morning. 

 For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity (holiness) and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you.

2 Corinthians 1:12


Today I'm sharing with you the scripture that I did my quiet time on this morning. I may continue to do this daily, if it helps me to stay accountable to this small commitment. Soon, there will be a post on the method that I was taught for daily devotional time. ________________________

Blogger. What the heck.

Where did my pictures go?

I logged on today to see how things were doing on this blog of mine and all of my uploaded photos, including the stinkin header, weren't showing up. I've replaced a few, but it's hard to remember what I put in each post. I apologize for the lifeless looking posts, while I deal with the technological difficulties.

Sincerely, your obliged, photo-happy, photography-dabbling blogger.

A year's reflection on the faithfulness of our God

I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.

Love is a

I was just looking at the new gagets from polaroid and my mom walked in with this guy. I remember her using it a few times when I was a kid, but she ran out of film. It was (and still is) too expensive to be worth it, and that's a shame.

This is a lense that might never get to share what it sees again. A point of view, silenced from repeating its insights. An artist with no canvas. A writer with no ink. A musician with no voice.

Lord, help us that we never be silenced by lack of medium. Let the words flow, the pictures form, and the music sing.

Let us never lose our way to tell our stories.

Why I didn't post on "Best Friend Day"

In case you're not aware of all of these new "national holidays" (congratulations), they span in content variety and absurdity from national hug your cat day to CAPS LOCK DAY. The most recent was yesterday, National Best friend Day.

Fall afresh on me
