Day’s Verse:
Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling.
Psalm 2:11

I learned three things over break:

  1. Everything changes.
  2. Nothing stays perfect without human intervention.
  3. Some people have abhorrent taste in house design and decoration.

The changes come gradually; living there you don’t really notice. But only visiting every six months or so, they have all built up and come crashing down in a huge crescendo. The perfection can be a yard meticulously maintained, a haircut trimmed constantly, or a car waxed to a high shine. But given time and no human intervention, weeds proliferate, hair grows, dirt adheres to paint. The abhorrent taste in design and decorations refers specifically to two houses in Ian’s area. We call one the Brick Monstrosity and the other That Really Ugly House With Too Many Lawn Ornaments. I’ll leave the explanation at that.

  3. As he came into the window, it was the sound of, a crescendo

    She ran underneath the table, you could she, was unable
    So she ran into the beddroom, she was struck down, it was her doom
