And David said, "The Lord rewards every man for his righteousness,
and his faithfulness, for the Lord gave you into my hand today,
and I would not put out my hand against the Lord's anointed. 
Behold, as your life was precious in my sight, 
so may my life be precious in the sight of the Lord, 
and may he deliver me out of all tribulation.
1 Samuel 26:23-24
But I say to you who hear, love your enemies...
Be merciful even as your father is merciful
Luke 6:27, 36

I didn't get here last week...I had a rough week

some weeks are like that.

So here is a compilation from the past two weeks. 

We went to Joey's basketball game.

The Patriots won the Superbowl...again.

On Tuesday the parade went right past the building that I work in...again.

It's pretty exciting and pretty crazy!

So many people!

 I took my daughter, Bonnie, and my two grandchildren to a LEGO train exhibit

at a small museum nearby.

They have model trains set up everywhere and Verne was in absolute heaven.

He was shaking he was so excited!

I also got to play with sweet little Abigail Rose!

She is smiling now and so darn cute.

Bonnie tells me she still doesn't sleep so well at night...

but she sure is cute during the daytime!

O God, who teaches us that you abide in hearts that are just and true, 
grant, that I may be so fashioned by your grace
as to become a dwelling pleasing to you.

Tuesday I wasn't feeling well so I took the day off.
By afternoon my tummy began to feel a bit more settled
so I did some much needed housekeeping. 

When, at dusk, I sat down to my devotions
I read this collect.
And Mark, where Jesus says to his disciples,
"Are your hearts hardened? 
Do you still not understand?"
~
soften my heart with your grace
open my mind to your understanding

"Woe is me! for I am lost; I am a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips,
for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!"
Then one of the seraphim flew to me,
having in his hand a burning coal

that he had taken from the fire with tongs from the altar.
And he touched my mouth and said: "Behold,
this has touched your lips;
your guilt is taken away, and your sin is atoned for."
Isaiah 6:5-7

February brings the rain thaws the frozen lake again
Sara Coleridge
she lived in Cumberland, England, where it is quite possible
that February brought the rain
but here on this rather tiny island on the north shore of Boston
while February may bring rain, it also brings snow, sleet and ice
lakes will not be thawing till the end of the month ... at soonest.
even the Atlantic tide is rolling up slushy and almost frozen.

Winter continues to lay it's siege upon us
we encircle our home with warm cozy blankets, movies on the telly,
piles of books upon the nightstands, music playlists at the ready,
scrumptious suppers filling the house with heavenly aromas
hearty soups on the burner and cat naps in the low light of an afternoon.


Our cat, Tucker, is curled up purring on my lap as I type
and the dawn has not yet begun to fill the sky with colour
though I can see the it turning from black…

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth,

for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away

and the sea was no more.
