3-5 Son Day

13 mo Emma slept over, as Jess and Daniel hosted a party for a dear friend. It’s 5:45 a.m. and soon she and grandma will awake a second time (first at 4 a.m. for a feeding) and pancakes will be on the menu. I composed a poetry book of Jess’s early years, and Emma on petervenable.com


Song line from The Apple Festival


“Can’t no grave hold my body down—”

Not then, not now, nor age begun:

When Almighty God’s trumpet sounds1

His own shall rise from terra’s ground,

For He said, “Let the thirsty come.”2

1 Thess. 4:16, 2 Rev.22:17
