Accompanied by a dancer

Today started off with suture removal.  It had been 5 days and I figured that since she said 5 to 7 days that meant my little incision would have been pretty much healed up.  I’m afraid my pristine beauty has now been marred by my rushing things.  The incision –the one up by my hairline – opened up.  I am now closed up with superglue and a bandaid.  Not quite what I had intended but that is how life goes I guess.  Nice to have a Dr hubby on mornings like this.

Started cooking the meat for tourtiere and finished off my writing for the Advent Candle lighting tomorrow. Then a little ballerina arrived.  She was dressed all in pink and we began what ended up being a day spent together.  We all went out to choose trees and threw three of them on top of my little Matrix with the car top carriers.  Delivered them.  Went for lunch at McD’s and then for groceries.  Interesting, grocery shopping with a 3 year old.  She decided that she needed a bag of marshmallows.  She wanted to ride in the cart, then out of it, then hung on behind for awhile.  She held the list and we did manage to get everything on it and make it to church for music practice in time. 

At worship practice we were treated to an hour of interpretive dance and attempts to help Birdie play the organ.  Mrs. Birdie was most tolerant, bless her.

One week left till Christmas.  Lots left to do I’m afraid.

Listening as I work

To Joan Baez’s Album Day After Tomorrow 

This may not be orthodox theologically but I love the song. 

God is God – lyrics by Steve Earle

I believe in prophecy.
Some folks see things not everybody can see.
And once in a while they pass the secret along to you and me.
And I believe in miracles.
Something sacred burning in every bush and tree.
We can all learn to sing the songs the angels sing.

Chorus:
Yeah, I believe in God, and God ain’t me.

I’ve traveled around the world,
Stood on mighty mountains and gazed across the wilderness.
Never seen a line in the sand or a diamond in the dust.
And as our fate unfurls
Every day that passes I’m sure about a little bit less.
Even my money keeps telling me it’s God I need to trust.

Chorus:
And I believe in God, but God ain’t us.

God in my little understanding, don’t care what name I call.
Whether or not I believe doesn’t matter at all.
I receive the blessings.

That every day on Earth’s another chance to get it right.
Let this little light of mine shine and rage against the night.
Just another lesson
Maybe someone’s watching and wondering what I got.

Maybe this is why I’m here on Earth, and maybe not.

Chorus:
But I believe in God, and God is God.
