The True Bride (conclusion)

On the second night there was a gown that glowed like the moon and a crescent of jewels to adorn her hair. The prince was entranced by her beauty this second night and forgot his other bride completely, but still did not remember his true bride, Elise. The prince danced with Elise alone until the night drew to a close and the princess took her leave.

The last night Elise found a gown that glittered like all the stars of heaven above and adorned herself with glittering diamonds to match. The prince took her arm the moment she entered the room and as they danced their first dance of the evening, the prince asked, "Who are you, my darling? I feel as though I have known you before." "Have you forgotten," she replied, "What I did when you left me?" She leaned toward him and kissed his left cheek. At once, a fog lifted from the prince’s eyes and he embraced his true bride. "I must stay here no longer," he declared and they left the ball and rode home to their own palace.

When they arrived they saw that the apple tree was in full bloom. Hundreds of glow worms were upon its branches, making the tree shine in the dark night. Elise and the prince were married that very night under the apple tree and they lived happily ever after.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
