strange

it was the first time I didn't spend the entire day at home, eating comfort food and blogging and reading silly books.
I would have, but for a meeting I couldn't avoid, but somehow going and doing something (farmer's market, starbucks, meeting, a little work, playing video games with friends) that made life resemble a normal life--like the life I have on other days, like the life millions of people have every day, regardless of major milestones in my own life...it was kind of good. maybe.
I still miss my mom. every day. and I still don't celebrate Halloween because it's not really fun any more. but yesterday was almost a normal day. almost.
I could see glimpses of what Isaiah talks about in the text we will hear in worship this morning:
And God will destroy on this mountain
the shroud that is cast over all peoples
the sheet that is spread over all nations;
God will swallow up death forever.
I might be about to believe that again.

  4. I love you Teri! "And the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." (That's the Bible and Harry Potter for you!)
