For Auld Lang Syne

31 Dec

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet…

And thus we come to the end of this part of our journey.  Earlier this year, I moved my blog from the domain name of the same to WordPress.  It was a time of regrouping and reflecting on just exactly what I wanted the blog to be.  So, having made that determination, or at least having developed a plan, tomorrow I’m moving back to the domain.

This site will remain as an archive.  But if you’ve reached here by mistake, and if it’s after midnight on December 31, 2010, head on over to The Write Side of My Brain.  You’ll find me there.

If you get there early, please be patient.  The official launch is 1/1/11.

Happy New Year!

Once more into the beach…

7 Aug

My family, well most of us, heads to the Outer Banks today.  Still waking up, getting the last of the laundry done, stocking the fridge for the 21-year-old staying behind to work and keep the live stock (old dog, betta and hermit crab).

I’m looking forward to early mornings on the beach.  Time to pray.  Time to think about stuff, or not. 

I’ll be contemplating what’s happening with this blog and the other.  This one is more of a place holder, the other more an experiment.  But neither are gathering much traffic.  I need to get back to the business of serious writing.  And I need to figure out how these blogs fit, or not, into that plan.  And I need a plot for Nanowrimo.

But not today.  Or tomorrow.  Or the next day…

No shoes.  No agenda.

Ash Wednesday: A Hymn for the Beginning of Lent

Depth of Mercy
Charles Wesley, 1740

Depth of mercy! Can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God His wrath forbear,
Me, the chief of sinners, spare?

I have long withstood His grace,
Long provoked Him to His face,
Would not hearken to His calls,
Grieved Him by a thousand falls.

There for me the Savior stands,
Shows His wounds and spreads His hands.
God is love! I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.

Now incline me to repent,
Let me now my sins lament,
Now my foul revolt deplore,
Weep, believe, and sin no more.
