A New Focus for 2012

"May mornings be advents
Each coming a mercy..."
Some of my favorite lines from a favorite poet, Kathleen Nielson. They fix the eyes of my heart on the wonder of God's never failing faithfulness and his mercies, new every morning.

The first mornings of a new year are extra special, a time to review, a time to renew, and a time to begin again.

I'd abandoned this blog last year as preschool plans no longer filled as much of my days. I've decided to re-envision the purpose of this space and broaden it's content to correspond with my current circumstances.

My desire is to post at least once a week and record insights our family is learning on this journey of being transformed by the Word as we look for evidence of Christ's preeminence in every area of our lives.

Rom 12:2 transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.


  1. Nice. Looking forward to your posts.

  2. I'm excited to see you blogging again. :)

  3. Oh, hi there! :)
    (You ought to share her entire poem with me sometime.)

    1. Here you go my friend...

      May mornings be advents,
      Each coming a mercy,
      as light breaks the night,
      with no shadow or cold
      spared it shinings.

      May days be redemptions,
      taking back from the dark
      what it claimed in the night,
      until night one day flees
      from an onslaught of light.

      May evenings be thanksgivings
      that light has come near –
      into flesh, down to dust –
      and that the light will reign
      for one grand, final day.
