To Sandy T's unborn child

"I created you and have cared for you
since before you were born.
I will be your God throughout your lifetime -
until your hair is white with age.
I made you,
I will care for you.
I will carry you along
and save you.
Isaiah 46:3-4

This Weekend I ...

- borrowed this idea from Jona
- went shopping at Target&Old Navy and bought my niece more clothes (why can't they make cute clothes for girls above age 12?)
- splurged on a Starbucks coffee
- went to a free movie in the town park with one of my favorite teenagers
- found a place to hang my art from Jona
- remade a shirt so it would fit
- baked, ate, and shared some zuchinni-caramel cupcakes (and some chocolate chip cookies)
- used 10 cans of spray paint on two huge bookshelves (and need more)
- cleaned my desk!!
- worshipped with my favorite people
- held my 10 month nephew while he slept
- eagerly anticipated the delivery of some freshly roasted Tanzania Peaberry coffee
- satisfied my craving for curry chicken salad
- read a few pages in my resolution to finish at least some of the books I've started

missing -

Today I reconnected with an old friend via facebook. Although no conversation has yet been exchanged, the memories wash over me in waves. I looked at the pictures and cried. I miss him. I miss his face. I miss the person I recognize behind the goofy expressions. I miss our friendship. I miss how he inspsired me. I miss the crazy fun our group of friends could contrive. I don't want to go back. I don't want what he has. I just miss him. I wonder what I've missed during the last 7 years.
