Slow Living | Memories of the Lost

Our trip to England.

Today, April 8th, was much cooler than it’s been and turned overcast in the afternoon, surprising us with hail. Yesterday was the 3 year anniversary of my estranged British husband, Steven Mattin’s, death. We had been apart since 2009, but he wasn’t willing to sign divorce papers, so…C’est la vie.

He is holding a Passover Seder haggadah. We were at Holly and Bill Begley’s Seder in 2007. Passover this year is in 9 short days!

It turned out that he had been born with a heart problem that was never detected. His landlord found him face-down in his apartment with his jacket still on. He was currently living in Bridport, England, which, if you’re familiar with British serials, is about 2 miles from where “Broadchurch” was set.

I drove him to Panama City, Florida, because he’d never seen the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Getting older is not what I thought it would be. The older I get, the more hygge I need, so I surround myself with sheepskins and have a little cubbyhole to watch movies from in the evening in my la-Z-boy chair; sandwiched between the bed and the wall with a wrap to cuddle in. A candle within arm’s reach to kick the hygge up a notch, if need be.

Tonight as the Lord’s Day begins at sundown (also known as Shabbat!), the temperature will dip down nearly to freezing, wind whipping. A perfect night for wrapping up, drinking cocoa and spending time with Yeshua in His word by candlelight.

My white Icelandic sheepskin and smiley slippers. Candle already lit. 😊

May you have a restful Shabbat full of shalom. Remembering those who have gone too soon. From our humble home to yours. 💕

It's not about me, it's about my Father, His holy, unchanging Word, Yeshua made flesh! No ear tickling here. (And maybe a couple of posted recipes that I've been unable to find online elsewhere. 😉)
