the sky isn't an intimidating shade of gray, but i hear the vague thunder.
lyd, for not having a camera in her hands that much, totally surprises me with the way she shoots things.

last night i finished green at 1:40am. hah. i guess it's a good thing i could sleep in today. but, i've made outside the house it on less sleep before. ;) i can survive nearly anything if i have to.
lyddie came in from running through the sprinkler, took one look at me, and sat down with her box of beads.
within 10 minutes she had placed a beautiful pair of earrings in my hand. blue and green. to match the dress i'm wearing.

this lets me let a deep breath out. it makes me see some of His goodness and mercy [we pray for justice, we pray for wholeness, don't we?] in the midst of every crappy thing that happens in this world both presently and in the past.
this fills my heart with gratitude as the tide coming in.
