(I'm fine and had no damage.)
Today is Tuesday and it is a beautiful day. Such a testimony that His mercies are new each morning. Yet such a temptation for me to forget that there are people whose business will close as a result of this past weekend's severe storms, or have to start over- losing precious memories along with common day comforts. Nashville is coming together to provide needed supplies for displaced people and starting the process of cleaning up and assessing damages.
My camera phone pics.
These first two pictures are of a golf course!
Next three pictures are from Hermitage- down the street from where my friend Rebecca lives.

I have walked through this last month a bit dazed. Was hope on the horizon or another hill to climb?
People have been asking me questions that I just don't have the answers to. But I have one now. :)
My friend Julie has offered me a place to live, rent free. I know . . . crazy cool, right? This act of generosity has restored my waning confidence in this new chapter of life.
A friend of mine writes a blog and a recent post felt like my life.
Church has felt like an obligation and frankly, pretty boring. I am not involved in a Bible study currently and have felt so far away from God's Word. I wish I could say this was a recent development. But then came church on Sunday.
The message was called "Learning to Swim." I linked to it so I could share with you the encouragement I received. He met me right where I was, when I couldn't take anymore, with words that spoke clearly to my heart.
I pray the same comfort and passion over you and a soft landing in His arms as you take your leap of faith.

Today is all about loose ends and catching up.
- Financial planning Appointment and subsequent To-Do list
- Email updates
- Looking into subbing for next year
- Watching the snow fall while at Barnes and Nobel
- Facebook - why exactly are people on so much?
- Thinking about lunch - leftovers, I'm pretty sure
- Letting the "shoulds" roll around in my mind.

Okay, more like vinyl decal art work. :) This was so much fun and added a neat unique kick to my room. I know I am leaving in a couple of months, but it still felt worth it. :) I think I will put up some vinyl quotes in my classroom next. Who knew I would be so into vinyl?
Step One- takes the most amount of time and precision. I am so not a detail person!
Step 2- rub-a-dub-dub
Step 3- Repeat process
Step 4- attach clock piece. Ahh,sweet success. :)

Our friends, the Clays, run and orphanage and other ministries in Port Au Prince, Haiti. Please pray for Corrigan & Shelley, their family and the orphans and kids they lead. They came through the earthquake alive but their buildings are not safe to return to. Last night they slept on the street and have reported that t...he conditions where they live are very bad.
If you want to get involved with helping in Haiti I can think of no better people to support than people who are on-the-ground with the orphans and poor already. Check out their web site at
Thanks for spreading the word and helping out!

What a long absence from blogging. I think I was so frustrated with work that I stopped taking the time to capture the FUN and sweet moments. No more!
Let's talk about the glorious unexpected, unearned, and perfectly indulgent gift that is a snow day.
I am unashamed to say that I slept peacefully for most of the first one. Nowhere to be. A day without lesson plans or convincing a student to care about inner and outer planets.
Just a slender covering of white and the peace that comes and whispers, "Take this day. Rest." So I did. I made biscuits . . .It was very domestic of me.
Smudge loves the snow and continued begging to go outside.
She looked frosty out there. I made her come in shortly after.
Work returns tomorrow, Monday, but I am re-created and ready. As it should be. :)
