The world has felt very heavy lately.
So, I’ve been trying to take a page from Solomon in Ecclesiastes 8:14-15
There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.
Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. (KJV)
In other words: this world is messed up. And while I do believe it is our duty to try to fix it whenever we can, we are also allowed to enjoy life. In fact, scripture commands us to be joyful time and time again, whatever our circumstances.
I’ve been going through a rough patch lately. Just the usual life is hard stuff: nothing earth shattering. So I’ve been making sure to put lots of coffee dates and fun things on my calendar.
The other day, a girlfriend and I went to lunch and then to Anthropologie for a little retail therapy.
This plate reminded me of Bringing Up Baby and for $16 CAD had to accompany me home.

And then there is this guy.
