gentleness lately: esther + daydreams

inviting you into my moment

delicate piano notes tip toe in the air while violin sounds swirl about my quiet room 

like a ballerina 

The Secret Life of Daydreams from the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack plays

as I type

Oliver is at school

Jeff is at work

the sun is up above

March is upon us. 

I am  minutes away from brush strokes and color mixing and art creating.

Then I will get ready for a roadtrip to Alabama with my mom this weekend

to visit my grandma.

I will proceed but maybe with touch of procastination or maybe not.

While listening to the music this scripture came to my mind

whispering truth;

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
— Esther 4:14

God calls me to hard things, sharing in His suffering, enduring and persevering, but today when this scripture popped up out of nowhere in my mind, it felt like a gentle kindness that God called me to such a time as this too; a mom at home on a quiet spring day, reflecting, listening to music, taking time to write, caring for our home, and finding time for art.
