It’s gloomy out today...a little cold and overcast, but I know Sunday is coming. The forecast is sunny and a high of 79 degrees! I’m looking forward to having that light and heat kiss my face (but not for too long, because I’m terrified of sun damage).
Today is a serious day. I woke up feeling the weight of it. My eyes get teary when I try to grasp what this day must have been for the ones that saw our Lord give himself over to suffer and die.
I’ve been working while sitting outside on the porch all morning (in a sweater with a hood, a blanket and cranked up space heater), with the budding trees and singing birds as my company. As I go through my to do list, I’m alternating my soundtrack between the Portuguese version of “Come Back to Life” that I’m learning and the soundtrack to the most recent movie version of “Jane Eyre.”(Thank you Dario Marianella for the beauty you put in the world (click to listen). Also, I experienced this completely joyful moment when at one point a little birdie was singing a perfect counter melody to the orchestra.)
