For One-Liner Wednesday, I wanted to post a “Midweek Meme.” It was a really funny raccoon meme that I originally found on Instagram, but when I looked for it again I couldn’t find it.

I watched a movie today, “Because of Winn-Dixie.” It’s based on a book that I read in 4th grade, so I was curious to watch the movie version. I really enjoyed it and thought about sharing a quote from that movie. However, I gravitated back to the raccoon memes and found a different one to share:


For One-Liner Wednesday, I have a Bible verse and a poem to go with it.


Every tear
Is agony when love
Is unrequited, turns one-sided.

Every tear 
Is grief for what could be,
Is pain that the happiness has passed.

Every tear
Is worth its weight in gold,
Because suffering is not wasted.

For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (NRSVCE)

Happiest Times

For One-Liner Wednesday, I turned to the page for today (May 10th) in my copy of The Wisdom of Fulton Sheen and found this gem:

Our happiest times are those in which we forget ourselves, usually in being kind to someone else. That tiny moment of self-abdication is an act of true humility: the man who loses himself finds himself and finds his happiness.

Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen


What if, what if? The words echo, just as reverberations of choices make their voices heard in next steps, in decisions subsequent. There are so many possibilities that it is impossible to know in the moment which one will lead to happiness and which to regret. 

How many permutations exist in space, in time? I sit thousands of feet above the sea of Maybe, atop the mountain of Longing, slowly standing. 

There are no fences along the edges, so I approach the precipice and jump. 


For DVerse Prosery. Our given line is: “In space in time I sit thousands of feet above the sea” from May Sarton’s poem “Meditation in Sunlight.”

Pretty Picture

I colored this today. Something to show for today.

I pretty much hate my life and can’t sleep because of crying too hard, so here’s this nice picture I printed out and colored today, one of the things I enjoyed.
