Photo Fall-Back

I have a zillion posts planned, but I seem to have a case of writer’s block after the star poem.

There is forever a pull toward the status quo…

Plus, I’ve been dealing with things like this:

That was sour cream, intended for Thanksgiving Day mashed potatoes. How was your Thanksgiving?!

It seems like I just posted a similar picture on my facebook page a couple months ago.

Hmm… yep, here it is. The flour episode:

Why didn’t some of you veteran moms warn me that motherhood would be this way?!

It wouldn’t have mattered – it still doesn’t. I wouldn’t trade this for the world.
(You knew it would be that way, too.)

When I’m short on words, it’s comfortable to fall back to photos. These were taken by our creek:

What’s your comforting fall-back plan, when you realize you need to be still?

*************************************

Job 6:24-26
Teach me, and I will be quiet;
show me where I have been wrong.
How painful are honest words!
But what do your arguments prove?
Do you mean to correct what I say,
and treat my desperate words as wind?

Psalm 37:7
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him.

    Beautiful pictures of beautiful kids.
    In almost any situation I fall back on…. Psalm 37!!! It never fails to set my heart right.

  2. I love the pictures by your creek! We’re in the midst of some big changes here and are looking to find a small parcel of land out in the country to build a home on. I would LOVE to be able to venture into my own yard when my body craves stillness. Kind of hard to do that when you live in a sub-development and your neighbor’s house is close enough that you can literally spit on it from your kitchen window.
