love, love, lovely.
So, I’ve decided to start a blog following all the planning, coordination, silliness, craziness, love, and joys of my engagement. I would love for you to all become part of it by following me at:
Yesterday was the first official snow here. Let’s just say it’s nothing like snow at Hume.
Had a hard day?
While exploring my favorite thrift store I stumbled upon an old hymnal. I found it so precious. Albeit simply bound and smelling of stale perfume, it is a treasure. I’ve been reading it as poetry along with my daily devotions and it has been so powerful. So often we forget about how beautiful truth can be. Each hymn overflows with doctrinal truth yet maintains such poetic charm and grace. I know that hymns in church usually seem so dull and dry, they even usually all seem to have the same tune. However, when you take a moment and read the words it’s so wonderful. Seriously, the next time you’re at church reach in front of you and take the dusty hymnal out of the pew and read a few.
This is just a stanza from todays hymn, “The King Shall Come.” There’s just something simple yet beautiful:
“The king shall come when morning dawns,
And light and beauty brings.
Hail, Christ the Lord! Your people pray:
Come quickly, King of Kings.”
Prone to wander.
Sometimes the simplest remedy is to lay in bed with a glass of wine and watch Sense and Sensibility.
Hello my dear, make yourself at home.
Take my heart, Lord. Take and seal it for thine courts above.
Stay classy San Diego.
The leaves have begun to change color which makes my heart happy. Autumn has begun to make her home here and I eagerly welcome her with a hot cup of tea. I love the crisp autumn air, the beautiful fall colours, the smell of fireplaces beginning to awake, and the blessing to keep warm by snuggling with my love. Autumn is my favourite. There is some thing so creatively inspiring about the descent of fall. I absolutely love it.
*during the autumn months words become even more beautiful and must be spelt the old english way in order to breathe even more majesty into them.
So long and farewell.
I love San Diego and will miss it along with everyone I love who lives here.
Ok, Minnesota show me whatcha working with.
