.... new growth
that makes me smile and see more love
... more "heart."
... and all of this grows not only morning glories
and zinnias but a bit more in me somehow too.
Coz "It's all about the love," she said.
And I know it's true.
That more loving and growing in Him, ...
grows more love in people too.
For the four wheeler ride behind my sweetheart one afternoon.
And then his bright eyes that spotted glass
beneath this tree.
Cracked a little, ... but a vessel
and beautiful in it's own way.
That Tony's good eye is healing
after scratching it badly somehow this week.
(He's legally blind in the other one after slicing his eyeball
when he was 8.)
Thank you Lord for his sight.
For her desire to help Uncle Tony, the Music Man.. and
his incredibly soft .. sweet patience.
Witnessing this... not only touches me
but ... teaches me.
What gift to see.. with all my heart.
--for ..."Patience," Momma said.
Those words of wisdom and direction for me...
continue to bless... over n over ... even though she's with Jesus.
For the stranger I ran into at Belks.
How we talked like old friends around a display
of colorful Fiesta Ware. Turquoise, persimmon,
bright yellow and red.
Thank you God for her wonderful vintage style,
smile and warmth to me that day.
For horseplay like this....
The Strongheart and Myguy.
"I love you
For lamp light
on Sisterbear's quilted Fall runner;
while studying the Word.
The light helps clear all the noise in my head.
Seeing our Strongheart
be Daddy... to his new family of 5.
Seing baby Carter still in his button up church shirt.
Yes,... definitely God bumps I feel.
For this crazy and wild kitten who
took up with Alyssa, and who ... Alyssa adores too.
is all joy.
For this sweet surprise...
more and more love....
I know I should share....
but it's hard Lord.
For the owl I saw again at dusk,
..and a small fawn on the bottom driveway.
for zucchini blossoms.. and the hope that a few will
still make before first frost.
for beautiful rainfall.
.... that Mr. Possum won't be killing any more of our banties.
and for the woman I met
uptown- we discovered we both love
primitives and boots, .. card making...-- even altered vintage suitcases.
You just never know who or how you'll bump into someone.
I was blessed... to have met her.
For time with my dear WackyJacky.
And that she grew another year older.
For some Shelbydog lovin.
Shelby is Jackie's border collie and I've known her since she
was a pup. It's kinda weird to have a bond with a dog who's really not your own but
I do! And we know we do! The love Shelbydog drooled all over me
is always sweet to my soul.
Then ...coming home....
This happened. I knew it would and had camera ready.
They forgave me for cheating on them...
and they're also gifts.
I give thanks for them continually,
Because they're wonderful friends of mine who spend almost every hour of every day
by my side. I'm thankful.
so many blessings in my simple little life.
Thank you God.
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
