As is usual around here lately, I'm extremely busy during the week (work every day, go out most evenings) and am extremely not busy on the weekends (the kids, Clint and Drew, move into my mom's place, AKA the party house, on Friday evening/Saturday morning and rarely come home before midnight on Sunday.)
Shannon, who'd been staying with me all week, left on Saturday as well, so the house felt exceptionally empty. So, after I dropped Drew off at my mom's, I went for a drive. In my truck.
I opened the sunroof and let the SUN. SHINE. IN.
On my head.
And it was good.
My Escape has never been to the cabin and was dying to see it, so we headed east, my ride and me.
The yard was full of rabbits.
I caught one with my camera, mid-flight:
We should play a Seek.n Find game. How many can you see in the photo below?
The old, rotting beams and railings are gone:
It was sunny and HOT everywhere else in the lower mainland except where I was. So I closed my sunroof and drove into the storm like the thrill seeker I am.
Marg blogged about. I had to see them for myself. I did. And it was good:
In this hour of quiet, I come to you.
From the fret and fever of this day's business, from the world's discordant noises, from the blame and praise of those around me, from the confused thoughts and negative imaginings of my heart, I would now turn aside and seek the quietness of Your presence.
May there fall upon me now, O God, a great sense of Your power and glory, so that I may see all earthly things in their true measure. Let me not be ignorant of this great thing: that one day is with You as a thousand years... and a thousand years as one day.
