knee deep in weeds

notes on an imperfect life

Let it Come

“Let it come, as it will, and don't
be afraid. God does not leave us
comfortless, so let evening come. "
― Jane Kenyon, Let Evening Come


the week is divided into two parts; the harsh reality of sameness,
and the yielding awareness of pure bliss.
each play their own role within my days.

“The soul's bliss and suffering are bound together.” 
― Jane Kenyon

the week is divided between weeds, 
and wild beauty, both created by nature.
don't ask me to choose one over the other, 
for i could not, as both find their way
deep into my soul, where they create peace.


we celebrate Jordan's birthday, a few weeks late,
we laugh so hard, we all comment on it the next day.
my heart is tender, as i wonder how it is i am so blessed.
i make note to hold on to that tenderness,
embraceing it and knowing it is okay.

"Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off the hook. Work regular hours."
- Jane Kenyon 

have a beautiful weekend. . .
