Who Would Have Guessed?


Coloring.  Who knew that sparkly pens and colored pencils 
and quiet hours with a dear friend could be such good therapy?

Or that summertime would come and go in a flash?

Who could have guessed that a 60th birthday picture 
would finally yield a blog avatar that 
didn't leave me looking like a deer in the headlights?

Or that a neighborhood stroll would yield a treasure trove of 
trashed miniature picket fencing just waiting to haul home?

Who would have guessed that a trio of swans would enjoy 
just hanging out on the sandbars of the bay ... and
 let you almost close enough to let you touch their downy feathers?

Or that God would take your littlest grandchild up to Heaven
 and leave us all gasping with grief and grappling with grace?

'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord.  'They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  In those days when you pray, I will listen.  You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest.'
   ~   Jeremiah 29:11-13 {TLB}   ~
