I'm always floored when God manages to do those little things or send us those little messages just when we need them most.

What a beautiful post...and I just love the photo, too. I can imagine what you must have been feeling. How sad to lose a wonderful church but you seem very comforted by your faith, as it should be.

You didn't abandon your poetry - it still shines through your prose, Miss Sam ;)
Lovely post.

Samantha, I found your blog from a comment you left on Christina's, which included a WS Merwin poem. I illustrated a poem of Merwin's and put the story of how I discovered him on my blog a few days ago; you might be interested.

I really relate to what you wrote above. A couple of weeks ago I had an intense desire to reconnect with members of my family, who all live on the other side of the world. I emailed my three brothers and my father with whom I have only infrequent contact. I called my mother, my sister, my children. Two days later, my mother had a major stroke, and now we're all in touch every day.

I'm also writing long letters to my friends, making phone calls, making time for what's truly important -- celebrating LIFE. As Christina says, it's what's TRULY precious.
