We’ve had over two weeks of gloriously fall like weather. Yes, it’s going to warm up, but I’m so thankful for the reminder that summer will end, and cool air will come back!

This show is right up there with Firefly and Band of Brothers as my favorite show. I love how there are little signs of them being a family, a father, son, and daughter-in-law, from the very beginning. I love the growth of Peter and Walter’s relationship. I love Walter, the broken man. I love Olivia who’s strong but needs help. I love Peter who is stronger than anyone every thought he could be: the criminal who becomes a hero. I love that over all the strange weirdness is really a story about a man who loved his son, and who then loved the women his son loved. I don’t typically like shows with tough female leads, but they fit Olivia and Peter together so well, I fell in love with it.

If you haven’t seen this show, I highly recommend it. It will make you laugh, cringe, and cry. It is wonderful in every way.

 

Quote of the Weekend

“The irony is that a certain modern approaches that portend to exult God’s perfections end up domesticating his transcendence.”

“He came to know God in the darkness, so that what he discovered was God shrouded in mystery.”

– Charles J. Rennie ‘Analogy and the Doctrine of Divine Impassibility’ from Confessing the Impassible God.

I love the sharpness of truth in the first quote. The second one struck me because often people claim to find God, but never talk about the creator/ creature difference.

Quote of the Weekend 

This week I became an aunt for the tenth time on my side of the family. I’m honored to welcome Finley into our family. I hope she’s ready for this craziness. 

I also finally got to celebrate Rachel and Lauren’ s 14th birthday this week with lots of candy and Willow and Stardust. 

This was an Aunting week to be sure!

Quote of the Weekend

Here’s the cover of my first published story!

“Yggdrasil stood.

Her three roots reached past the end of the world Cthulhu occupied with dark dreams. Her branches towered above the heavens of the world Cthulhu blackened. From her would come the re-population of the world. What did she fear from this Old One?” – Ragnarok by Abby Jones

Dear readers, this is a quote from me and my freshly published flash fiction! I am now, officially, a published author. Thank you all for cheering me on for so many years. I want to say an extra special thank you to my family, who has supported me in this for seventeen years now. A huge thank you to Deanna Brown, Emily Shiflet, and Stephanie Florentino for graciously and enthusiastically responded to every thing I’ve written.  And to Leila Rose for giving it a good going over, and finding so little that needed fixing. I’m so happy, thankful, and excited right now. I hope this is just the beginning, and that I can start to find homes for all the little and big stories in my heart.
