Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.

C.S. Lewis

We see something on the drive down that we have never seen before: a vertical rainbow. It follows us for a time, then forms into a ball,of rainbow and disappears.

On the way home the sun shines bright and the sky is beautiful and blue. The sun puts on a show as it goes behind a mountain and the trees atop it take on an interesting glow.

In between we help clear out my mother-in-love’s room, sort through things, dispose of others, and enjoy lunch and good conversation with family; the world, slightly different without my husband’s mom in it any longer.

Still, we are grateful and blessed.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
