So the weather never really did much of anything today except rain a little on and off and remain stinking humid and too warm for my sensibilities.
I feel as if I am in a state of limbo. Not a purgatory, thank goodness. I am not suffering. But limbo, for sure. I do what needs to be done here and little else. I tell myself I am nursing myself back to health and maybe I am.
To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible. It comforts me. It is a beautiful and wise piece of poetry.
I have had my times and I am having my times and will have my times until I die.
They have all been different. Some have been big, huge. Some have been small, tiny.
But they have each had their season. This is the one I am in now.
The train goes by. The frogs sing. The bread bakes in the hot oven.
I have things to do.
Tomorrow there will be different things.
My husband, whom I love, is hungry. I need to go make a supper to go with that bread.
I've put comments back on but with word verification. If the spammer returns, I'll shut it all back down.
I just want to say thank you for being here. You have no idea how much that means to me in this time, in this season of my life. It means more than I can say.
Very glad you've let us in again. It feels forlorn just being able to read without jumping in and having our say.ReplyDelete
I'm glad that the spammer seems to have lost interest. What a pain in the ass!Delete
I feel a great deal of warmth and love for you, Mary. Thank YOU for being here. xxReplyDelete
And I for you, Jennifer.Delete
I too felt sad that I could not say anything! I look forward to reading about your season and time every day!ReplyDelete
I love comments so much that making it harder to leave them hurts my heart.Delete
don't want to say much other than to acknowledge my love of your sharing your daily life journey, .......and to say how much of of a comfort it is to me every day. Hope I can post without being bumped out of your internet fiasco. How annoying to have to deal with such mattersReplyDelete
It is annoying. But not life-threatening. Perspective. That's what I keep telling myself.Delete
Glad you're back and comments are open again.ReplyDelete
We love youReplyDelete
And I love you.Delete
I think a lot of women are feeling low and depressed today, including me. Once againReplyDelete
A supremely intelligent, extremely competent and qualified woman will not be elected president. I am now 76 and fear I will never see a woman elected president. I am so sick of the misogyny I've seen and faced all my life. I really do despair for the future of our country and I am very angry.
Once again women have been told to stay put in their place and then told exactly where that place is. And is not. And it's hard. But don't give up on hoping that one of these days, hopefully SOON, you will indeed see a woman elected president.Delete
I'm sorry you had to devote a day to such ugly "housekeeping". I get soooooo frustrated when I don't understand how to fix something, like blow up a spammer's computer, or his bot. Right now I've lost two entire afternoons to some piece of Facebook that apparently the Zuck has removed. A real spammer and I'd be screaming.ReplyDelete
And what do these spammers gain? Is there any money in spamming? I seriously don't get it.Delete
Add my voice to those that come here daily for comfort, and get it. You voice so beautifully the things i too feel.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sally. More than I can say.Delete
I'm sorry about the spammer. I have comment moderation enabled and that works well. The spam was left there and deleted by me and never appeared in my published comments. I am extremely sorry about Elizabeth Warren and continue to fear for this country too.ReplyDelete
Yes, I thought about comment moderation but I certainly can't "moderate" and delete over a thousand comments. Ugh.Delete
No. Our country isn't exactly bursting with promise right now, is it?
I'm so grateful for you and this place. Thank you.ReplyDelete
I'm so grateful for you.Delete
Thank you for helping me to know that others are out there that do understand how I feel. Yes there is a season and a time and as we grow older and that time moves so much faster it becomes difficult to slow it down enough to experience it. Be well and know peace.ReplyDelete
"Be well and know peace."Delete
What a beautiful blessing. Thank you.
be here now. don't worry about the past. don't worry about the future. just do today, this moment.ReplyDelete
So simple, yet so hard. Something to work at for our entire lives.Delete
I missed you and I'm glad you're back. Your little bit of Lloyd helps keep me grounded.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lilycedar. I sure would miss you if you disappeared.Delete
BTW, there is no word verification on the comments. I just hit publish and it published.ReplyDelete
And yet...it's supposed to be on. I have gone back and checked my settings to make sure.Delete
Some days are like that. Limbo-like.ReplyDelete
I like that Bible verse too -- although I never think of it without the accompanying musical soundtrack of The Byrds.
Hi mary, you will never lose us, no matter comments or not. Yes, the seasons they go round and round...and then the whole shebang just stops...along for the ride.ReplyDelete
Exactly. Ride it while we can.Delete
I must confess that years ago I had a blog too. I quit it because of the spammers. Terrible things they said, I could not take it even as it was all false. Oh well.
And BTW what's happening on the chicken front? Are you getting eggs or do the girls know it's spring and nesting time?
Chickens are good. I'm down to five hens right now but they're laying pretty regularly. Five isn't very many but I think that Liberace is happy with the smaller flock. Easier for him to keep track of. I keep thinking that one's going to go broody soon.Delete
Love from the UK. See if it works Maggi xxxReplyDelete
I am glad I get to come here. You make all my seasons better, more true. Hugs, love.ReplyDelete
And you make all mine better. Hugs and love back.Delete
i run a website and we get spammy members like that in waves, usually trying to sell us cheap viagra, passports, or cheap kitchen cabinets.... i hope they leave you alone!ReplyDelete
Yep. I ask again- what in hell do the spammers get out of it?Delete
Hello, Ms. MoonReplyDelete
I read your blog every day. And if I’m busy and forget I go back to read each day that I’ve missed.
I love reading about your family. And how,you take care of everyone with your cooking and baking and sewing.
I don’t comment much. But I’m here.
Have a great day. Sending peace love and hugs!
Thank you, Karen. It's very nice to hear that I have readers who for whatever reason don't want to comment. I appreciate that.Delete
