cameratricks

A couple of weeks ago, I drove through the end of a rainbow. No really. I saw the end of it- where it hits the pavement, and then I drove through it. I saw the different colors of the spectrum reflecting off of the cars in front of me. There was no pot of gold, but there might as well have been.

I thought of this while I was driving today. I drove through a MASSIVE cloud of those fuzzy things that have been dancing all throughout the air the past week or so. It wasn't quite as magnificent as driving through a rainbow, but it was a pleasant experience regardless. It looked like the pillow fights they show in movies-you know, the kind that you have never had, where tuffs of fluff fly everywhere and cover everything and everyone. Camera tricks! It's like bubblebaths that are filled with bubbles.

In other news, I'm a silly, silly woman. Someday I'll write an entry about the foolish things I do- but they are currently still fresh enough to be embarrasing. But someday, I will tell you of my silliness, and then you will laugh with (at) me heartily!

But, despite my foolishness God is still faithful to me. It seems like all of these things in my life have been falling into place to create an environment of healing for me. I don’t understand it; I don’t know how to respond to it. Mostly, I’ve got more emotion than I know what to do with lately. But He is so good. So faithful. So true.

"Oh plunge me deep in love --
put out My senses,
leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind. "
-Sarah Teasdale

i have seen those fuzzy things too! and they make me want to curse slightly, despite their beauty, because of how they seem to bring allergies with them.

I call those fuzzy things "summer flakes". I also find them particularly magical.

I'm in shock about the end-of-the-rainbow! Thats incredible!

Remind me to tell you sometime about the reverse sunset I saw in Kenya. This post reminded me of it.
