laurencaroll Antique store meandering with these lovely ladies. Where it's only junk if you think it is. Where there are postcards from the 1930s that read in faded pencil writing, "Dear hubby, I might as well mail you a deck of cards while I'm at it. June is having a high old time...", and $3,000 mirrors like this. Where you are laughing at the silliness of a doll then marveling at the beauty of a teacup that might have once belonged to the same person. It's amazing how much one can learn from lifeless things once used and worn and loved. Basically upon this experience my life has just begun. 3d

laurencaroll "In this I stand undone so I can be again of hope restrung;
consisting of a little bone,
a little flesh, and thirstiness;
that’s what I am - even less;
yet all that's wrought and fully known.
In this I hide among the living,
the forgiven, the forgiving,
on this skyward journey seeking
Mercy’s open, unrobbed home." [a piece of a poem called "Skyward] #joshuatree #sitting #sky #adventure #climb #poetry

laurencaroll So I was praying for flowers for a woman event I'm organizing tonight but didn't have time or budget to buy them. And lo and behold, this morning a facilities man was pruning all the white rose bushes on the backside of my dorm. He said we could take them and that "he was supposed to do it months ago." Feeling loved. Jesus knows. He is so good. 1mon
