Some more pictures of our
shopping with Megan and Ash
in the gift shop.
I like to think of bright happy days
while going through grey times.
I have committed my concerns
into God 's hands. Its His battle not mine.
He knows what is best
and He will accomplish His
New American Standard Bible
3 “A bruised reed He will not break
And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;
He will faithfully bring forth justice.
God knows I am a bruised reed and dimly burning wick. He will have mercy on me and bring forth His justice.
I want to take a Sabbath break
A man with some authentic worries
And many vain and silly ones
I am well-schooled in sleeplessness;
I know it from the inside out.
I breathe, and I know what's at stake.
But still sometimes I'm sane and sound,
however heart or head may ache;
I go to sleep when I lie down,
With no determined care to breathe
I breathe and live and sleep and take.
A sabbath from my weariness,
I rest in unwaking trust
Like clouds and ponds and stones and trees.
The long arising Day will break
If I should die before I wake.
(A Timbered Choir - Wendell Berry)
