‘trees’ | rebekkah the band
I’M IN-BETWEEN MUSES, SEEMS LIKE NOTHING IS MOVING • I’M STUCK ON THIS TRAIN CAR, WATCHING THE TREES BREEZE BY • I’M MOLTING AND SHEDDING, SLOUGHIN OFF LIKE A SNAKE SKIN • FEELING FAR TOO EXPOSED, BUT I’VE OUTGROWN MY COMFORT ZONE
IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL OH, AND I CAN TELL • ALL WILL BE WELL AS I BRAVE THE UNKNOWN
IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL IT IS WELL, ALL WILL BE WELL HALLELUJAH, SHALOM!
Thus says The Lord: ‘keep justice, and do righteousness, for soon my salvation will come, and my righteousness will be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath, not profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.’ Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the Lord say, ‘The Lord will surely separate me from His people;’ and let not the eunuch say, ‘behold, I am a dry tree.’
For thus says the Lord: ‘to the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, who choose the things that please Me and hold fast My covenant, I will give in My house and within My walls a monument and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off.
And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to Him, to love the name of the Lord and to be His servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast My covenant – these I will bring to my holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples . . .‘

a tidbit haul
a few weeks ago I had a random hankering for a solid, healthy pop tart-esque situation that this era’s pitiful rendition of the decadent and satisfying 90s toaster pastries doesn’t fulfill. Today while traipsing through a grocery store for snacks and mongo kiss lip balm, I happened upon these beautiful strawberry hand pies that happened to be among the most affordable options, with only 10 grams of sugar, each!
