Run to safety

“A dear friend of mine who was quite a lover of the chase, told me the following story: ‘Rising early one morning,’ he said, ‘I heard the baying of a score of deerhounds in pursuit of their quarry. Looking away to a broad, open field in front of me, I saw a young fawn making its way across, and giving signs, moreover, that its race was well-nigh run. Reaching the rails of the enclosure, it leaped over and crouched within ten feet from where I stood. A moment later two of the hounds came over, when the fawn ran in my direction and pushed its head between my legs. I lifted the little thing to my breast, and, swinging round and round, fought off the dogs. I felt, just then, that all the dogs in the West could not, and should not capture that fawn after its weakness had appealed to my strength.’ So is it, when human helplessness appeals to Almighty God. Well do I remember when the hounds of sin were after my soul, until, at last, I ran into the arms of Almighty God.”

Life conspires, love wins

Sad how quickly
life can pile on
and it comes at you
from every direction.

And you crawl home
and you unload it all
with the one who loves you.

And they say
Are you all better now?
And you are.

And the next day
you go back out
into it all.

And life comments
on what great patience you have
and you know you don't have patience,
you have one who loves you.

The story of a love
is not important.
What is important
is that one is capable of love.
It is perhaps
the only glimpse we are permitted
of eternity.

Winter comes

The struggle of living with on again off again internet sure has it's frustrations and stresses but I live in a place where it is provided as a part of my house and work so complaining doesn't have real value in the long term view. So as you can guess, it's been mostly off again for six or seven weeks. We are taking steps, but as with most things, out here in a field, the "steps" we take are slow and two forward, one back.

Today winter really comes to the field. The wind is howling out there and the snow is falling hard, to the tune of 20-50 cms in these two days. People are hunkering down and staying safe I know the school busses are cancelled for this area today. It's the first storm of the season so people are reacting wisely, mostly.

If I had more internet I'd upload a photo.

You take care out there.

Storming outside today so I'm staying inside.
