#glow - lent 2017, day 10

Lord's ear.
Leans near.
Lord's love
Is here.

#broken - lent 2017, day 5

I was at the home of expat acquaintances living in France and found their bathroom d├ęcor endearing.
Thus, the photo.

They'd framed the plane-ticket-as-excess-baggage papers for a beloved dog who had traveled with them.
How cute.

And then I proceeded--somehow (not the first time I've been klutzy Kami) while changing
into a swimsuit--to knock this adorableness onto the ground.
Tile floor met glass.

I confessed, asked for a broom, cleaned it up. But I never offered to replace the destroyed frame.
I should have.
Faux pas #2.

Faux pas #3 is that such faux pas still hang in my guilt-box longer than they should.
Shake it off.

Broken happens in many forms.

Psalm 51:17
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God,
you will not despise.

#injustice - lent 2017, day 2

Oh, healthcare, let me count the ways
Injustice reigns
Lord, please be so very near the broken bodies
Who can't access
or afford

#struggle - lent 2017, day 1

Computer time.
People time.
Time with words.
Time shared between words.
Sometimes intertwined.
Sometimes competing.
The struggle is real, they say.
Yes. Yes, it is.
And the Lord is in it all.

I'm traveling during Lent this year and need to keep my Lenten practices as simple as possible. Hence, I plan to follow The Lent Project from Biola University's Center for Christianity, Culture and the Arts. I also hope to participate in a daily photo activity that I'll mostly just post here on my blog, and perhaps occasionally also over on Instagram. I'll follow the themes proposed by the United Methodist Church at or, like today, pull a one-word theme from The Lent Project. Join me!
