"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
Rejoicing in the gifts of His hand, I add another page to my journal~
RAIN, glorious rain!
and the prospect of more to come
garden helpers, even as the season comes to an end
end-of-summer deliciousness, ripening on the vine
and the anticiaption of a few more tomatoes from our backyard experiment
homemade mashed potatoes-- made from our-very-own-garden spuds
and end-of-summer color... I'll take it as long as it lasts!
a birthday celebration and the joy that comes with turning six
special friends and a dinner at Wegmans (a birthday first for us... and likely a first amongst all six-year old boys... but that was his choice... and it turned out to be a blast!)
hiding in the bathroom for 60 seconds (please don't tell me I'm the only one who does this :)... only to be interrupted by my very confused two-year old... "You potty training??"
those unexpected moments of levity
and the reminder that they grow too quickly.... so cherish it while it lasts!
meals around the table
being reminded by my two-year old daughter that we forgot to say grace
an email from a special gal whom I've never even met face to face...
and her words of encouragement, her words of truth, her words of compassion...
that point me to Jesus, every. single. time
a community of believers and the accountability it provides
darling kindergarten girls and the opportunity to serve in their class
and eternal security, found only in Jesus Christ
"... and the cry of my heart is to bring You praise
from the inside out
Lord, my soul cries out..."
~From the Inside Out, Hillsong
