drizzling days

I love to sit and watch the rain fall, watch the puddles form, and the pond fill up.  I love the rhythm of the rain and all that it offers to the dry land.

That is how quiet time is too.  It quenches a thirst that lingers without it.  It soothes a weary soul.




Today I am thankful for so many things,

~ for a husband willing to work here and there – everywhere

~ for the routine of school, and pouring of truth into little minds

~ for Bible study after breakfast dishes are cleared

~ for a boy of 6 who tells me Bible stories as I sew – and delights in what he remembers, and a momma who gently reminds him of the missing details

~ for cutting firewood on the land for the fires to come

~ for bonfires on cool mornings

~ for sneaking away from this place to another to sew and fill my creative cup that has been running empty for a while now

~ for a visit with family that fills that cup to overflowing – for making memories (and tamales), having fun, and just being together

~ for cold weather coming and the fires we will have to keep it at bay!!
