Mistakes

Life

So how do we make it that way?

Frozen in time

“Photography takes an instant out of our time, altering life by holding it still.” Dorothea Lange

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. . . . I’ve found it has little to do with things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliot Erwitt

And I have seen some spectacular photos here in blogging world. And if you want to share even further, maybe here is the place for you. Gosh, sounds like an ad. It is not.

Gnocchi

Have you ever had a song that was stuck on repeat going through your head? You did not hear it playing anywhere. You did not read about it or the person who sang it, but it is there. Ah well. To gnocchi.

I am remembering when I tried to make homemade gnocchi. Followed the recipe to the letter. They floated to the top. They did not look like the store bought kind. I followed the recipe; I said that already. Let us just say that they did not turn out the way they supposed to.

Like life. We make all these plans, going to college and afterwards a good, solid job. Saving enough for this thing or that thing. Following sets of rules before marriage. And what happens, sometimes? With all that planning and doing, nothing turned out the way you wanted to. Maybe in need of a new recipe.

Breath of fresh air moment

On Wednesday I did something that I had not done in awhile. I watch the sun rise. Breath of fresh air. Breathtaking? You got it.

So what is your breath of fresh air moment? Do not forget to take it.

The Way It Is?

Are things the way they are because you want them to be or, are they that way because they have to be?

How much is enough God?

Servants killed. Sons and daughters killed. Animals, some taken and others killed. Rich, now poor. Hit rock bottom. Wife told you to do the unthinkable. And what did Job say?

“Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”  Job 1 vs 21

And I wonder, Would I be able to say that if those things happened to me? How much suffering is too much before a person falls to pieces?
