The hero falls; her face is in the grass; her nose is pressed to the earth. The smell of soil, the breeze brings the scent of wild flowers that bloom right where their seed is sown. Natural, that this hero should be face down before the Lord. He is mighty and He has taught her the joys and contentments, the truths and the humilities. He has given her the pale reflections of His greatness. She calls upon Him and He has come, such is His faithfulness. She prostrates herself, so overwhelmed by the feeling of grace, that she was given something so monumental, so everlasting. The hero cannot speak, nor stand. The Lord is beautiful, terrifying, constant. Her ears are full of the voices around her; the chorus of praise resounds forever in the design of Creation. Trees move, rustled by air. Heart moved, reborn by grace.

Just watched High Society. Watched Grace Kelly drink, makeout with everyone, drink and drive, and drink more, and get away with it because she's drunk and it's the 60's.
Then it ended and I lay here wishing I could watch another movie. Then I remembered. I'm an adult! I can do whatever I want! This realization was followed by maniacal laughter and a viewing of The Court Jester.

I can't really give up on that little secret hope. So, I'll just try to come up with coping mechanisms to deal with the realities.

Message to Robyn while babysitting:
"I told all the children that they needed to keep it quiet because Katie is sick and needs her sleep (she was obviously tired before bedtime). I am sitting in my room and it is super quiet for several minutes when I hear "Yed, Jeedus lud me." It was Katie. Now Marley is in there giving her Passover message. "Jesus is the lamb. The blood on the door protects us." Which immediately turned into a discussion about the benefits of being 4 or 5. (years old)."
Now they are having a discussion that would make most adult theologians cry.
"God is the strongest god ever. He's even stronger than my daddy." -Marley
"My family and Jesus keep me safe." -Lucy
"The Lord is good, the Lord is fine, the Lord will save!" -Marley
"When there was a big, big flood, God told Noah to build a big big boat. That was a really good plan. The sea was full of water, with big waves." -Lucy
"Noah waited. As years passed, the rainbow came." -Marley
"Then the birds were like ca-caw, ca-caw." -Lucy
"I throw my teddy bear!" -Solomon
"God can go to anywhere. Even Florida." -Lucy
