My Psalm 121

Lord I look to you for my strength and sanity.
I cannot do this alone.
Without you, my work and hope is futile.
But it all comes from you.
When I am weak, you sustain me.
When I rage, you calm me.
When i need your protection, it never fails to show up.
And not just a pinch, but in abundance.
You give me more thank I can hold, and provide me more than I could ever comprehend.
I know that when I am at the end of my rope, you will provide a knot for me to hold on to.
You do this in my times of need and my times of abundance.
And you will continue to do so for all eternity.

I love the smell of yeast proofing.
It feels nice to have Autumn arriving. We are slowly moving back into a routine. Maybe not the routine i dream of, but hopefully one day it will be. the options we have with being home all day, of school in the morning, and love all afternoon.

Cool days, crisp and wonderfully scented. School is done. Supper is simmering on the stove. I think the kids and i will make bread in the afternoon for supper. I love these days. Calm, quiet days. Rain tapping gently on the roof. So much knitting to be done to keep us warm through the winter.
