On seeing the in between

Sometimes the beauty and the breath is in the in between.

Not in the meal made or the laundry done,
but the sighs and smiles and hugs between each act.

In noticing more freckles on his arm than were there last week.

In watching my toes disappear, even if only I notice.

In listening to my necklace twinkle at me and Baby Fifi
and wondering if baby ears are working yet.

In bending and opening wide and gulping air of this life just because I can.

In swallowing it straight to my heart
and locking it away dewey decimal style to never forget.

We are packing to move in less than two weeks, short notice and sudden,
it’s not been easy on these routine-loving children.
Plenty of “acts” with not enough notice on the inbetweenlove.

But we learn and we turn over soul soil and we do better tomorrow.


The necklace I’m wearing above is one of the pieces of love, the silver-love, sent to me and created by Lisa Lehmann of Studio Jewel. She has an exquisite eye and creates original work (hard to find in a sea of jewelry copycats right now) and even more important – she creates to create.  A true artist.


One conversation with this tall beauty and you’ll be intrigued and want to know her more. She has a heart for God that is precious and quiet and vulnerable and beauty.
I love this video she did to share more about her passion:
