June

I don't know what to name our baby on the way. I am stumped. We have been thinking "June" but I just don't know if it's right.
I'm trying to figure that out. And read War and Peace, work, welcome summer, etc.
I don't think there's anything nerdy about Les Miserables, it's only one of the best musicals EVER. So I borrowed the soundtrack and am enjoying it this morning.

This is John Hancock's gravesite. I took this picture on my trip to Boston with T at the end of May to see dear M. Notice the bird, very Keith Gidlund of me.

First backyard strawberry picked on June 1. Haven't had another one since. Hmm.

A Night Prayer from The New Zealand Prayer Book

Lord,
it is night.

The night is for stillness.
Let us be still in the presence of God.

It is night after a long day.
What has been done has been done;
what has not been done has not been done;
let it be.

The night is dark.
Let our fears of the darkness of the world and of our own lives
rest in you.

The night is quiet.
Let the quietness of your peace enfold us,
all dear to us,
and all who have no peace.

The night heralds the dawn.
Let us look expectantly to a new day,
new joys,
new possibilities.

In your name we pray.
Amen.
