So much to share, so many miles, so many revelations to share sooner rather than later, but not today.  

Holy Saturday reminds me of old-fashioned South Texas funeralizing, preparing the house and the table to receive mourners, making sure that there will be enough chairs for seating, quietly relating stories of the beloved or the deceased, who may of may not be one and the same.  These preparations are readily apparent to the Clergy and the Altar Guild and the close ones who gather somberly to wait.  It is an important part of the waiting we are called to live into together.  

But waiting, no matter how holy or blessed, is time between, not fully lived unless I wait upon the Lord.

Today is the First Sunday in Advent, beginning of the Christian year.  This is a time to watch, wait, prepare, and put on the armor of light, which sounds like a directive to string lights and wear sparkly earrings.  The Advent hymnody is rich and varied, with plenty to keep the voice and spirit singing until the Christ child comes on Christmas Eve.  There is no need for “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” or even my favorite conversion song, “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” until after the shopping season.

My multi-talented, too-ADD-to-use-Facebook BFF called one morning with a tale of defrosting the freezer in their garage. She was looking in her files under “A” for the instructions. Suddenly, the professional mezzo-soprano burst into song: ‘O, come. O come. Amana Manual…”. Advent will never be the same. BTW, the freezer was a Tappan.

Welcome to marthasway@WordPress.com! This is my very first post.  My life is… eclectic, so against all reason, I am creating this blog.  It is probably the only way I have a breath of a chance of having anything done–marthasway.

  • I have run out of the excuses that have kept me from writing everyday.
  • I cannot work outside the home.
  • I have trouble following through with plans made in advance.
  • I am committed to keeping what is left of the little pieces of my mind.

Getting off to a clunky start is better than staying stuck in ‘maybe’ and ‘what if’ and ‘why not’, so as we say at at our house “Puff puff, Toot Toot, Off we go!”…
