Behold the fleck of ant
bearing with diligence his large
load of crumb down the long
mile of floorboard.
By observation we become
part of an insect's life. Is he
aware of us? What thread of vision
links antic and observant?
What false criterion of size?
And who is it who, watching us,
whispers Watch for Who it is
Who watches you?

Tired and Oversaturated

My brain is tired and does not have the energy to think. It is full of too many things that are jumbled and I don't have the energy to sort them out. I am sick with shingles and a sinus infection and just meeting responsibilites is taking way too much energy. Sorry for the whinge but life is just like that sometimes and I do try to be honest.  I know there is a lot to be thankful for but right now I am just too tired. MS does that and that is all there is to it. Just found this on MS World....

Where am I?

Last week on Monday it was 60 degrees, then this is how things looked on Thursday May 4th, the biggest snow storm in May EVER, then on the next Monday it was 73! I just can't figure it out and neither can the chickens, they have gone off the lay and I can't blame them at all. We went to Mexico to a beach wedding for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and escaped for a little but I feel it just added to the sense of being turned around. It is a strange world where we can lurch from such extremes, from country to country then back, from snow to heat. To add to it all I am sick with the shingles. I feel like I don't know which way is up or where I am. I am looking forward to getting back to being settled and in a routine. This weekend we are putting on a memorial and reception for Edith Schaeffer which is a big challenge in itself. What next? I am afraid to ask, but I know that without friends and faith I wouldn't be making it.
May 4th
Postscript: May 11th the forecast is for 90 degrees (32 C) and the memorial went well. I am still sick, I over did it on the weekend and now in bed resting up at last.

A whirlwind of a wedding

This is the wedding that we just went to in Mexico. Our 'adopted' daughter got married and it was just beautiful and we love her husband Grant too. We are so happy for them. My husband preached and looked pretty good too, he did a great job as well.
