This Weekend ~ March 11 ~ me encanta

This weekend, I hope you find many hours of “me encanta.” Me encanta translates to “I Love.” Over the last many months, I have not posted any “This Weekend” posts. I have been surrounded by my dissertation and lots of travel.

There have been fewer times of rest. Fewer times with friends. Fewer walks with Ruby. Pancakes with Dad continue. But overall…Fewer times of me encanta. This post by Ann Voskamp gracefully reminded me the me encanta is vital.

Praying that because of grace, you enjoy many me encanta moments this weekend.

This Weekend~March 27~This Weekend Don’t Listen

This is my first weekend post in awhile. The last weekend post was just two days before my mom passed to Heaven, although I did not know it at the time.

Perhaps that is why this collage from Brave Girls Club means so much today…

This Weekend~ December 19~Carve it

Moon Horizon

Today marks an anniversary of one of my favorite stories of love.

On December 19, 1972, the last Apollo crew landed safely back on Earth. Apollo 17’s crew of three included the last two men, Harrison Schmitt and Gene Cernan, who would walk on the moon. It is the final act of astronaut Gene Cernan that contains the favorite gem for me.

As he walked toward the lunar module, Cernan knelt and scratched his daughter’s initials in the lunar surface.

It is possible that his daughter’s initials, TC, still remain on the moon’s barren surface. His act of fatherly love certainly remains in memory and…in practice for me, and maybe you too, today. Because of Grace, we have received such love.

 

 

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. ~John 15:13-14

 

Today, might you consider, some act of “initial impression?” I know you won’t deface anything, but might you be on the lookout for, and notice any opportunity to impress the initials of a loved one (doesn’t have to be a daughter) in the snow, the garden soil, the playground sand, even a Styrofoam cup (this is where you’ll find me scratching out my daughter’s initials).

Do it in honor of Gene and love that literally can be to the moon and back!
