our endless numbered days.*








We spent almost the whole day out and about together, working on a project for Clint.

After days like this, that are gone before I'm ready to bid them goodbye, I find myself thinking about time -- how it's so fleeting, and how I'm especially good at losing track of it. And then I end up thinking about the concept of eternity and eternal life, which kinda sorta terrifies me (tell me I'm not the only one?) but somehow also fills me with peace. And then I stay up way too late...


*Iron & Wine - Passing Afternoon
(that song always gets to me)

  1. oh my goodness, angela.
    i was listening to iron and wine just now.

    so many of there songs bring tears to my eyes.

    a lot of their songs make me introspective, that is for sure.

    p.s looove the flowers!

  2. and then you comment on my blog... so i come read yours and stay up even later than too late.

    thoughts of eternity make my head spin and my face and skin hot. when i was in kindergarten i remember an FHE lesson on eternity and i went into the loft afterwards and tried to conceptualize something that didn't end. that made my skin hot too.

  3. Oh believe me; you aren't the only one. I freak out on the inside. My whole body goes numb half the time I'm in the temple or think about it and I'm then afraid that I'll jump up and scream in a crowded but silent room.
    I just have to think, "Smith will be right next to me during it all. And my little brothers and cats." Phew. Darn I'm going to think about it now.

  8. I know how you feel! It's sometimes hard that we are not in control of how fast time goes by. We have to savor every moment! I love that you brought up eternity. What a calming thought. Something that really does last forever. :)

  12. we are bosom buddies, angela. eternity gives me anxiety. i just had this conversation on sunday. i really don't like to think about it which is sad when it's supposed to be one of the best things about the gospel. i like the above comment about it making your skin feel hot. so true.

    your pictures are beautiful, as always.

  14. i used to cry to my mom that i didn't want to live forever... now i just tell myself that i'd rather be happy forever than miserable forever if i have to be around forever. :)

    you look great, i love the pictures as usual.
