Scrabbling of the Wind?

I’m having a hard time focusing tonight. There’s a heavy wind and it keeps making uncanny sounds. It sounds like something is scrabbling at the house, trying to get in. It’s not steady enough for me to ignore it. Rather it’s just infrequent enough to startle me every time it happens. Keeping me on edge. […]

Ashes on a Wednesday

God of mercy! God of grace! Hear our sad, repentant songs. O restore Thy suppliant race, Thou to whom our praise belongs! 2 Deep regret for follies past, Talents wasted, time misspent; Hearts debased by worldly cares, Thankless for the blessings lent: 3 Foolish fears and fond desires, Vain regrets for things as vain: Lips […]

Winter Wonderland

First, we had a big snow, about 8 inches. Which is huge for December in eastern Massachhusetts where we usually don’t get significant snow until January or even February. And then it froze and stuck around for days. Also unusual for early December. The kids all earned money shoveling snow. It’s a great thing to […]
