For Lisa, the dearest of dear friends,


Beautiful and rich is an old friendship,

Grateful to the touch as ancient ivory,

Smooth as aged wine, or sheen of tapestry

Where light has lingered, intimate and long.

Full of tears and warm is an old friendship

That asks no longer deeds of gallantry,

Or any deed at all – save that the friend shall be

Alive and breathing somewhere, like a song.

Eunice Tierjens, Leaves in Windy Weather

Our computer at home died.  Dead.  We are hoping for a resurrection and waiting for an Elijah to come visiting.  (Or is it Elisha?)  I’m at the library and have lost this post once already; I’m pushing the 30 minute internet limit, but they like me here!  I had a picture in mind for Fine Art Friday and can’t find it on the web.  Rats!

I’m trying to learn thankfulness in all things.  I want to type: (sigh); but I don’t think sighing is learning thankfulness, do you?  (grin) 

This week has brought a mixture of light fun and heavy interactions.  Have you noticed that emotional work is very exhausting?  I’m getting random – I’d better go.  Happy November, dear reader.

  1. Sorry to hear about your computer, Carol. Hope you are going to be replacing it soon. And meanwhile remembering that we are to be thankful in everything. Not always easy, is it? I agree that emotional work is exhausting.

    “…the dead in Christ will rise first.”(1Thessalonians 4:16)(NASB)-BibleGateway

    As seen in the scripture above – Those who havedied “in Christ” will rise first.  What does thatmean?  Dying in Christ is another way of saying thatthey have been specifically called to be part ofChrist’s heavenly Kingdom.
    If those dead in Christ will be resurrected first,then what about the rest of the dead?
    “The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended….” (Revelation 20:5)(NIV)-BibleGateway

  3. Ah, Carol–my computer has been “dead” for a number of weeks now.  Dan’s is still working though.  My computer has all the digital pictures on it.  We have them saved up to a certain point though.  But I dearly hope it can be resurrected–at least to get those digital pix. I am learning how to be thankful for the things that do work.  Yeah, I have a refrigerator that works again after two weeks without!
