Autumn is here,and once again is takes my breath away with it's grace.
The almost cobalt blue skies and incredibly clean breezes that make the leaves rustle, and the nip in the air that smells literally sweet....your heart overflows with joy to God for all of this, and your senses can't help but dance a ballet just stepping outside! I love it!!
I just got off the phone with my sister-oh she's a joy-and I banged on the piano a bit while the breeze came in through the screen door. Last night dearest friends (family, really) came over. Hot stew. Parents all went out to eat, and we kids had a blast. Fresh cookies. Movies. Laughter. A sibling spat. Apologies. Hilarious stories. Twister. Life. Love.
And then this morning, the smell of fresh cut arugula. That's one of the most wonderful fragrances on earth! Mixed with bundles of fresh spring onions and Morning, it is heavenly. Mama's pruning roses and brought in the most gorgeous spray. Edwin put them in a quart jar for Mama and they are so pretty.
A bedroom that doesn't have piles of clutter!! "And all the people rejoiced!" Me and Marf cleaned up and de-junked our room!! It feels like a hotel room now, LOL.
Seeing a 4 generation picture on the wall and missing everybody and loving them to pieces. Look, Spence was just a baby!! The struggle to have a good attitude when the computer doesn't work, or all your pictures are on the broken one...(hence the lack of pictures, by the way!) And time with Mama and Martha this morning. Oh, my Mama!! I am blessed. Oh, and the joy of a soft sweater. That is olive green.
And knowing that your Heavenly Father delivered you because He delights in you. (Psalms 18 is incredible!) Isn't that a miracle, though, the most beautiful knowledge!? My Saviour, my Jesus delights in me! It is overwhelming. I hope you have given yourself to Him, and have been cleansed by His blood.
And I hope your day is simple.
And full of singing to Jesus. I'm trying to "sing and make melodies in my heart" to the Lord today!! It is amazing.
