Listening to Tim Keller while typing this. Free Sermons here.
We have so much to be thankful for like free sermons from
gifted preachers. Wouldn't we love to hear instead of read Jonathan
Edwards or Calvin or Spurgeon.
Getting summer-like here.
Classes winding down.
My book reading stack building up.
IS there more time now? Yes, yes, yes.
I brought back a stack from the library this morning.
A stack for ideas for handwork:

From seeing this painting:
The Visitation by Rembrandt
Excellent YOUTUBE video of the painting here.
I can't get it to load right now.
SO I gave up and gave you the link.
It was the first painting in the exhibit at the Frist Museum on Nashville.
I came back to it before leaving. I stared and stared at its beauty.
Beauty still resonating in my mind.
Also saw these two:

It is a very steel grey Sabbath.
Heat is on in the house.
Soon, heat will be outside the house.
We will be sweating.
Today , we are reminded of God's Sovereignty.
He brings us rain to grow the earth.
He gives us our daily bread.
Here is Rebecca of The Little Boots Litanies with a poem for the Sabbath:
The Lord is my shepherd.
I am made calm
by the strong turn of his fingers
round the staff that collects me
into His company.
and young moms can read her on The Story Warren
as she remembers those days with toddlers.
I am going to meet her tonight. She is in town to hear
Sally Lloyd Jones, author of these books. Going to meet Sally too.
I absolutely love these lines in Sally's bio:
Sally lives in Manhattan and enjoys dividing her time between the front half of her apartment and the back.
Every day she is grateful she gets to do what she loves. lt’s her dream come true.

Makes you believe summer is far away.
The heat of summer, that is.
Loving EVERY GOOD ENDEAVOR about work by Tim Keller.
It is sinking into the depths and I felt some things in my mind and heart
turn around. Yes. Good books do that.
The school year is wrapping up.
I can see the end.
GOOD NEWS: # 4 son will be in England for a semester
He has lots of doors opening. He will be in CA for a month for a Geography Research
Project( in a month). So now, I am opting to visit England instead of CA.
Hoping. Emma's eyes were wild when she heard.
He's waiting to hear about another summer internship near my sister's house.
That will be for the rest of the summer.
His room here will be used part time this summer. He gets all 4 wisdom teeth out when
he gets home from college next weekend. House will be fuller soon & will fill & empty
during the hot summer months.
Going to see the Dutch Master's next weekend so prepping with The Story of Dutch Painting:
Good blog on the way to finding the book:
The Dutchess plus her art blog: The Hill Top
Isn't that cool?!
