bits & pieces.

yesterday i walked about twenty feet off of our driveway to the edge of the woods and laid in one spot taking pictures - first on my stomach, and then on my back. sometimes i think limiting the scope of my view by staying in one place makes me see more vividly and find more meaningful details among the random bits and pieces.

my life is all bits and pieces at the moment. i'm still working on finding the important details. :)

i have student teaching coming up, and then job applications and interviews after that, and then life as a working girl. for now, though, all these things are still in the distance. i can do a few things in preparation, but mostly i just have to wait until the time comes.

"so do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own."

i'm limiting my view here. staying in the now, holding on to just the pieces that belong to today. there really aren't many, compared to what will be. but for today, this is enough.

a friend here, a bibliographical list of children's literature there. listening to the stories of those around me. telling my own. sharing, working alongside my family. sending an email, searching a database.

letting the other bits rest. finding beauty in the pieces that are now.

{p.s. this set of pictures, especially this one, is really making me want to bake and - more to the point - ice a cake. and for a thanks-very-much-but-i'd-rather-have-pie girl, that's saying something. just a little more specific bit of random for you. xo}


  1. letting the other bits rest along with you. "cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you." {hugs} xoxo

  2. Thanks for the reminder that today's bits are enough. All the bits are in His hands.
    Love you :)
