Spent another night in our tiny cottage on the Lake, as Summer rapidly winds down up North.
We have always named our habitat spaces.
I’m pretty sure this stems from all those years growing up reading books perched amongst the branches of my parent’s Chinese Chestnut trees. Laura lived in The Little House on the Prairie, Scarlett O’Hara lived at Tara, and The Cleary Family lived on the sheep ranch, Drogheda. And so it goes for Cuppycake & I that there has been The Duplex, Springland Terrace, True North, and our current home – North Star.
Along with this rather new (special) cottage space, Cana.
Brothers and sister: None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For this is why Christ died. and came to life, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
Romans 14: 7-9
For life I choose thee now,
My pleasure, honor, friend,
Sole object of my vow,
Sole joy to which I tend.
For mercy’s sake, print, trace
Yourself upon my heart,
My arm, my forehead, face;
And not one blush will start.
Triumph of the Cross, St. Louis de Montfort – Stanza XXIX
