Hold On, The Stars are Bound to Change

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”

Psalm 23:4

What’s made me smile lately:

This song. So I heard it first in a commercial. I enjoy it and right now I’m about letting myself enjoy things.

Brand new sheets on our bed.

Colouring a map of Babylon with my three-year-old niece when she turns to me and asks, “Where’s your house?” Then trying to explain Babylon to a three-year-old.

The bouquet of flowers that my eight-year-old niece left in our room this weekend.


Plasticine cakes made by the sweetest six-year-old boy I know.


Doctors who copy out medical terms for you with a knowing, “You probably want to Google that later.”

The sunshine! the sunshine! the sunshine!


I have chosen you and not cast you off; fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:9-10

  1. These are all wonderful things! The song link isn’t working on my phone, but by chance is it “Ends of the Earth” by Lord Huron? I definitely have had that one in frequent rotation since seeing the Zales commercial last month!

    1. It’s “Stars” by Youngblood Hawke, featured in a commercial for Netflix. But I’m liking “Ends of the Earth” now too! I figure, after all, there’s a reason these songs are chosen for commercials.
