Some things that brought me joy yesterday.

Cooking for the first time with rosemary from my window herb garden!!

The mailman saw me as he walked up to the house and knocked on the kitchen window.
I opened it and he handed me my package.
Through the window.

(So I took a picture. Because that's just wonderful.)

The package was several yards of this GORGEOUS corduroy which I accidentally oops maybe bought off of ebay last week. (...Isn't it BEAUTIFUL??!)

Late afternoon sunlight.

Dinner at these guys' house. I love them so.

(So, so, so.)

Louisa insisted we sit down on the curb before we could go inside. "Sit! Moon! Moon!", and she kept pointing and making sure I was looking.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
