Look For Me As You Go By

Hullo Abi,

Remember you are blessed.
Like that time your family all tumbled together to be together.
Or that hug; the kind that held till you relaxed and melted a bit.
Remember that you are loved and forgiven.
That you could never fear enough,
doubt enough,
be confused enough
to break the hold of that blessing.

your pride has no sway on the weight of glory.

This dark you are so keenly aware of...
it's unlite hope,
the strained pause before a clash of splendor.

Be patient,
be courageous,
be grateful.

There is no other response for the depth of love you breath within.

Hang my head low, so low.
Don't see me only as I am
see me how I long to be.
Shining like a flowering tree

under a gray Pennsylvania sky.
Look for me as you go by.
Hang my head low, so low.

Every burden shall be lifted.
Every stone upon your back slide into the sea.
It's me for you and you for me.

i am grateful for my sisters
i truly am



just tried to say,
"you're welcome"
"no problem"
at the same time

"no, you're problem"

o gosh
what a way to end a phone call

Glory: Abi, how old are you?
Abi: Twenty-two
Dodie, with excitement: Hey! I already did two!

gonna hang with this group
there will be marshmallows


"it would be a lie to run away"


waiting for my online print order to go through,
i can restart the computer,
photoshop may be revived,
photos can be resized,
they might be loaded onto the website,
a 'online proofing announcement' can be emailed,
sleep may come to this weary body and mind.

in the meantime listening to music
trying to be ever praise giving
even from emptiness

i don't like these halting moments
it's easier to keep running from useless task to useless task

hard is good


heaven knows


"if you're patient i will surprise..."

For You, O God, have tested us;
You have refined us as silver is refined.
You brought us into the net;
You laid affliction on our backs.
You have caused men to ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water;
But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
Psalm 66
