Today's Programming is being interrupted by ... well... Life

I found the gorgeous picture above from this website. Can I please, please, pretty please be transformed to that place? It looks like living inside a Jane Austen novel.

Life has taken a pretty distressing turn for our little family these days. We're struggling to find answers to a major decision. I'm having a difficult time coming up with lighthearted, fun things to say, so I will be taking a little break from my blog for a while so I can deal with the roller coaster life has put us on.

Hopefully I won't be long. And hopefully when I come back, I'll be feeling fun and full of enjoyment again.

Meanwhile, I'll close with the words of the hymn my mother used to sing to me as a lullaby when I was a baby. It has a significant importance to me these days:

How gentle God's commands!
How kind his precepts are!
Come cast your burdens on the Lord
And trust his constant care.

Beneath his watchful eye,
His Saints securely dwell;
That hand which bears all nature up
Shall guard his children well.

Why should this anxious load
Press down your weary mind?
Haste to your Heav'nly Father's throne
And sweet refreshment find.

His goodness stands approved,
Unchanged from day to day;
I'll drop my burden at his feet
And bear a song away.

How Gentle God's Commands, page 125
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Hymnbook (1985)
