the gift of T O D A Y

this just makes me want to lay down, close my eyes

and absorb his words

simply beautiful

is this thing on?


i wonder if it's odd that i can actually hear the big brown truck traveling down our busy road

the day this arrived...oh, boy! a BIG smile in a box!

just looking at my little beauty bag hanging on a wooden hook in our living room brightens my day


we've been smiling around here lately

big girl "LOVES college!" 

the boys are enjoying fall baseball

we've been attending church on Saturday nights because, of course, the Sunday doubleheaders have all fallen at 9 & 11

but getting some fresh words...hearing some new worship music...it's always good for the soul!  and will make our post-baseball return to our wonderful church that much sweeter

and me? getting used to a new class at the university...helping my neighbor (goodness gracious, she's outlived everyone's predictions!)...fall cleaning...painting bedrooms...reading a wonderful new book (i'll tell you about that later)

i hope you are well in your corners of the world...

it seems i have so much to tell you, but when it comes to sitting down and writing you these letters the time has evaporated

you are beautiful...

sure hope you remember that today

found at a farmer's market

tucked back into an old horse stall


beauty in the people you love and who love you right back

their boy-love that says matter-of-factly

you're starting to get a mustache, mom...just a little one though

but with one arm draped around shoulder and breath close

the words are somehow endearing...the son-gift simply beautiful


and standing tall in a country field

around the bend...a surprise awaits the yearning heart

a field of sunshine

pure, golden delight


aren't we fortunate to receive it in so many ways?

open your arms, child...beauty is falling. for you!
