exclamation points and moving in fast forward
i just realized that many of these pictures have exclamation points in their captions. perhaps it is my way of trying to put a voice into these snapshots.
snapshots of things that mean so much to me.
a me who seems to be moving in fast forward these days.
nevertheless. a me who still wants to press pause long enough to make sure the camera has charged batteries and enough memory to cram lives overflowing with blessings into snaphots such as these.
i am the memory keeper of this family. and it is a job i take very seriously.
it’s too bad that i am also the chief sock wash-er. easter grass cleaner-up-per. baseball game chauff-er. birthday cake mak-er. movie screen-er and tak-er. because sometimes i feel that i am not doing a very good job at keeping the memories. or even making sure that the socks get washed for that matter.
but as i approach my 34th birthday. i can’t help but ponder my role in the lives of all of these people whose lives are enmeshed with mine.
i read something from the easter meditation in the magnificat, written by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict, about being refreshing as spring water to those we meet.
in short we must radiate the Living Water of Christ to a parched world.
i hope you’ll find something of that here.
and just know that it’s all HIM.
for you. and for me.
HE is risen as HE said!
ps. did i mention that the baby is reading?
