Today was beautiful. It still is, actually. The strong blues of the sky are clear and the green all over our house and yard defies description. And the wind! It's blowing, reckless and joyful.

I climbed to the top of our tree house and tried to journal. But the wind blew the words away. Something about the wind makes me feel so alive, so grateful for the present. I'm reminded of His faithfulness in ALL things. No circumstances change His character, He is the Lord of all creation. I stand with the wind, with blue skies, with green trees. And I am at a lost for words.

How great Thou art.

Benedictus es, Domine.


Latin Tuesdays

Meet my Latin class. Every Tuesday, we somehow manage to pull laughter and smiles out of declensions and vocabulary tests, whether or not understanding comes. And some days, my adorable students have light-bulb moments. All of them. And it clicks.

Today was one of those days. Hurrah!

I love my class.




Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

Sunset Cliffs, San Diego.

Last Saturday, we held my Uncle Kenny's memorial service. Then, we spread his ashes over the sea.

When Daddy spoke at the service, he ended his speech with these words.

The Lord giveth and He taketh away.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.



He is Risen!

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,

2 to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,

3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.

Isaiah 61:1-3
