In my British lit class we learned about Gerard Manley Hopkins and his ideas of Inscape and Instress. It really struck a chord with me.
Inscape is the essential, distinctive identity of a thing, intended by God.
Instress is our inspired perception of things as they really are. It's the process that allows us to see the stamp of divinity in created things.
I just love words.
And I love this world and I love my Heavenly Father.
Also, Josh loves me.
He mixed the peanut butter for me even though he also doesn't like to do that.
It made me happy so I drew a smiley face on it.
I love you too, Joshy!!
