Good Friday and Easter Sunday are perhaps the most significant days of the church calendar, and yet, in a real sense, we live our lives on Saturday, the day in between. Philip Yancey

Light and Shadows From Savannah

Last week Jason's mom, Amelia, Josiah and I made our way to Savannah for a medical trip. We started with a GI appointment, the squeezed in plenty of play until the next medical engagement. Grandmommy chose the hotel based on the indoor pool and other perks.

Taking in October

Since the last flip of the calendar I have been taking in October sip by sip. There is a complexity of flavors including a heaping measure of sweet anticipation, a welcome fresh addition.
Outside dining was a fabulous intro! Breezy, sunny comfort is hard to come by in GA. When it did hover for day after day after day I was reminded of two special times when we took advantage of such temperatures. Most recent was when high maintenance Lydia finally came home from the hospital, meals were at the hands of friends, my mom held down the fort inside, while Jason and I escaped to the table in the back yard to eat our food in dazed silence, breathing in the non-antiseptic air. I am also reminded of a trip to New England with my engagement ring, my betrothed and my future family. I couldn’t get over the very different “summer” temperatures and explosion of flowers, which made alfresco dining a full-sensory feast. It's satisfying that these can both be sweet memories in their very different ways.
