its all a blur

I can’t put my finger on it, but I like something about this. I think it speaks to me about what my life looks like right now.

So many of my friends are hurting. My heart breaks for them. I know it is part of life… to hurt, to grieve, to feel pain and sorrow. However, it can be hard to hold friends gently; allowing them to feel it all and not move them on to more comfortable emotions.
Today I go with my father to move my Grandmother to hospice. She has wanted to go home to heaven for some time. I pray she is no longer in pain and goes home quickly. I also pray for all of us who must continue here. May we love each other, support each other and be gentle with each other.

Hanging on to one of my favorite Psalms today.

<sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”>lift up my eyes to <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”>the hills.
    From where does my help come?
 <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”>My help comes from the Lord,
    who <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(E)”>made heaven and earth.
 He will not <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”>let your foot be moved;
    he who <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(G)”>keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
 The Lord is your keeper;
    the Lord is your <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(H)”>shade on your <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(I)”>right hand.
 <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(J)”>The sun shall not <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(K)”>strike you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
 The Lord will <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(L)”>keep you from all evil;
    he will <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(M)”>keep your life.
The Lord will keep
    your <sup class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(N)”>going out and your coming in
    from this time forth and forevermore.

The Professor

The Professor 

I am in love with my “new to me” Yashica LM.  She is little, easy to carry and creates the most amazing square photos.  Here are a few from my first few rolls.  I have a feeling we will be longtime friends.

I am excited to create MORE and learn MORE with the Professor.

My word this year is MORE.

I want to love more, hope more, feel more, create more, learn more, accept more, do more, and be still more. I want more grace, more joy, more gratitude, and more peace in my life.

While I don’t know what this year will bring, I am excited to live it.
