I went out to get my tall black boot fixed,
the zipper stopped working,
it would split before it was halfway up.
We watched the Walton's tonight, which was nice!
I feel behind in things, partly because I am not sleeping well,
because of the impact of unbloggable situation via stress...
hopefully tonight will be better.
It's colder here now, I love it.
Esp. because it is also sunny.
I was surprised to realize that I was feeling anxious tonight;
I think it's just the hardness of the unbloggable and the
uncertainty that comes because of it.
I am still reading Fr A. S's Journals... am now in year 1977...
reading Tolkien's Letters...
have been busy and not reading a lot else...
my eye with the cataract seems to be a bit worse in the last few days,
it may just be a combination of busy days + fatigue.
A lot of my friends are going through such tough times.
I was grateful for an email I got yesterday saying we were being
prayed for in our own difficulties.
Yet I am aware of how good, even with our own challenges, we have it.
So very good.
I am really grateful for our Christmas tree, decorations, for the dishes I have...
I was thinking about this earlier today...
I have blue and white dishes, white and gold, my Grandma's dishes,
my Christmas dishes, my Fiestaware everyday dishes... plus some odds and ends...
and my teapots...and three tiered plate stands for high tea...
I am so grateful for all of this,
that I have various options for seasons and hospitality... for creating beauty...
yet I think of the verses of the Gospel,
where your treasure is your heart is also and I hope my heart is still with Christ
and that I will not love that which is easily breakable and not at all eternal
more than our Lord who is the Life-Giver, the Eternal, The Beloved and the
One Who loves with perfect LOVE...
Well, may God have mercy on us all!
