believe


So You catch me when I fall, right?
And You hear me when I call cryin’
And You fix me when I’m broke, right?
And that’s all I need to know.
So the storm is gonna break right?
And the sun is gonna start shining
And everything is gonna go right
And that’s all I need to know.


But what if You know something I don’t?
What if You will something I won’t?
If You don’t give me what I want
But You give me what I need
Is that enough to…

Believe, believe, believe, believe in Your love?
Will I still
Believe, believe, believe, believe in Your love?

American Black Ducks, all in a row on Lake Edinboro. 2020

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.
