You can’t ask me what’s in my pocket, so I decided to post a poem here instead.
The Peace of Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
~Scientists have discovered that the sun’s astmosphere sings. But, we already knew that, right?
“Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone- while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?”
Job 38:1-7 NIV
~This little boy is amazing!
~We can finally watch a full-length trailer of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!
~Melinda Doolittle is my favorite on American Idol this year – and her song on Tuesday night was outstanding!
~On Wednesday night’s Idol Gives Back show, they featured a hilarious montage of various stars lip-synching to Stayin’ Alive.
Well, that’s it for links. Our weekend will go something like this:
~Play date at Michelle’s this afternoon.
~Movie night tonight – Harry and the Hendersons. I pre-ordered this in January when I heard it was (finally) going to be released on DVD, and it just came this week.
~Clean out the basement tomorrow.
~Possible movie night again Saturday: Night at the Museum.
~Church on Sunday.
Somewhere in there, I’ll find time to practice for the concert next Saturday. Any prayers for that occasion would be gratefully appreciated – specifically, that the sound system will work correctly, that we’ll remember all our words, and that the ladies who attend will be ministered to.
Any big plans for your weekend?
