*deep breath*

me and my mom biking

Autumn in Minnesota is my favorite time of year. The weather cools, the air becomes crisp and clean and the colors blaze a path straight to my heart. I've been away for the last several days with my husband and mom and dad. We've been biking along rivers and through sheltered wooded areas that remind me of cathedrals. It's easy to worship here.

And yet, I've been sad, always just a little sad. I'm thinking of my friend Kirsten and her lost baby Ewan. I'm breathing prayers in these cathedrals and sending her love and comfort. Lord have mercy on my sweet friend.
