It reminds me of the lines from Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales where he is relating the gifts he received:
"...and a painting book in which I could make the grass, the trees, the sea and the animals any colour I pleased, and still the dazzling sky-blue sheep are grazing in the red field under the rainbow-billed and pea-green birds."
I wish I'd thought of it as I was working on it because I would have included the "sky-blue sheep and pea-green birds."
Today will be another full and busy day with Amelia's baby shower (Mila will be going with us) and an afternoon/evening cookout at Raft Bayou. I have a dozen things left to do before the shower, but I found this site for prayers, meditations, adorations, and celebrations and wanted to include the following:
Here is one of the meditations:
Life is short and we have not too much time
|henri-frederic amiel - 1885|
Isn't that beautiful?
And this Invocation:
