a leaf collecting frenzy, the enthusiasm with which he embraced the hunt, and the beautiful work of his hands, now hanging on our dining room mirror

"Mama, I love you all the way to Pluto!"
Quiet, pensive pause.
"Is Pluto farther than the South Pole??"

a heavy burden met with timely words.... a timely message.... a timely discovery.
Exactly what I needed...
God's faithfulness every. single. time.

0105
servant hearts, the ministry of others, selfless examples, and childlike faith

0106
the gentle prodding of a Savior who loves me too much to leave me as I am

0107
extravagant giving

and these Words:

"...My grace is sufficient for you,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness...”

2 Corinthians 12:9

Loved #101...what a blessing that you do have a friendship{s) that are sustained through the distance. Those seem to be rare.
