These Last Days

Mar 22, 2013

These last awe-full days of Lent are upon us.

To be honest, the past few weeks seem to me like a blur of pictures and noise. The world is spinning faster now than it was just a month ago (something the poets know even if the scientists haven’t yet discovered it), and I feel the need to stop and steady myself.

And then … the headlong rush into a world made new.

I want to be ready. Or more precisely – I want to notice where it is already springing up.

I don’t want to miss any of it.



I’ll be opening my laptop a little less and stepping outside a little more.

Look for me in this space after Easter.


                    Thanks to our Photographer Kelli Campbell for this image of

                    my daughter on one of the most beautiful spring days I can remember.

    Me too Christie, opening my laptop a little less to embrace Holy Week. Love this photo and the words our chose. I shared it and then several on my page shared it as well. It’s been lovely getting to know you over at (in)ked.

      Thank you, Shelly! I feel the same – (in)ked has already been such a blessing.

    What Park is that picture taken at?

      Lisa, it’s in one of my favorite little northern Virginian towns near where Jon and I used to live.
