About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

Summer Sun Something's Begun

Hello friends. I've been a little quiet again. Don't worry I'm still loving life, enjoying the scenery and catching up on a little Gilmore Girls. I'm up to season 6 these days. If you know me, you know that I'm a little slow on keeping up with culture. I think that TV is much more fun to watch on DVD years later!

I don't quite know where to start. Since the last post I enjoyed 3 wonderful weeks of a summer break from school. It's really amazing how much a little time off brings refreshment and renewed energy. I think I'm going to make it a life long policy to take a few weeks off every quarter. Do you think my future boss will buy that?! Hope so!

Now my days have a more unchanging rhythm. They're less spontaneous than the childhood days of summer, but the structure brings a sort of comfort. Madeleine L'Engle has a little insight to add to this structure.
"You mean you are comparing our lives to a sonnet? A strict form, but freedom within it?"
"Yes," Mrs Whatsit said. "You're given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you."
I'm finding freedom everyday in the 'strict form' of my physical therapy curriculum. I'm finding freedom in
:::lovely phone calls
:::studying by the swimming pool
:::watering my bamboo plant faithfully
:::learning about eLecTRiciTy!

There's something especially settling about getting up in the early morning and watching the sun come up on my journey in. There's just something about mornings.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Psalm 90:14
I'm going to make a confession friends...if you pass me on the road I will probably be singing at the top of my lungs. I am a closet vocalist. Don't ask me to sing in public though, you would be sorry!

Have a lovely Saturday friends. I sure like yall!
P.S. These are a few random photos from the backyard. The same backyard I've been playing in for years. Home sweet home.
