How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.

Alexander Pope

It is one of those days where a jacket is worn even indoors, and the hall light needs be turned on. the feed on facebook is as brain-numbing as it ever was, but that’s another thought for another time.

one year ended six days ago, and we passed it wishing each other fruit and abide-titions, and passing out cards. we’ve been passing out cards a lot lately.

we suffered the year safely enough, even with the tears and spills and sometimes wishing a blameless vestal’s lot, just to be good, for once, just once. but it never does get answered that way, and the dust is there to be rolled around in, or heaped up on an aching head. there was so much dust around the past year.

but- sin and despair are not the last word in a world my Father rules, and never will be. friends and family have been His blessing for years, people to speak truth with and to have truth spoken to. and the knowledge that the His Son will surely return-
then shall I know, even as also I am known.
