Let’s savor this day, whatever it holds: work and play, coffee and cuddles with children, risk and rest, conversations and dreams and nap time and meetings, meals and prayers and the good stuff and the hard stuff. Daily life is still the best thing going, better than waiting for whatever it is you’re waiting for. Daily life is where it’s at–let’s savor it.

    If you’ve ever taken a road trip through the Pacific Northwest, you’ve probably seen a bumper sticker for a place called Gravity Falls. It’s not on any maps and most people have never heard of it. Some people think it’s a myth. But if you're curious, don’t wait. Take a trip. Find it. It's out there somewhere in the woods, waiting.

    As the dark, cold morning gives way to light, And the world shows its face dazzling in her nakedness, So the twigs and leaf-bare branches, Bow to the passing dance Of old Jack Frost. His crystal breath on the earth, And the corners of houses weep icicles of joy. But where is the Sun’s warmth? Where is life? A small flower, delicate and pure-white, Looks to the earth, As if talking to the waiting green, “Not yet,” it seems to whisper. “When I fall, then you can return.” And she nods her head, as the Lady passes by, Leaving more flowers in Her wake.
