The increased time came in unexpected ways. I am reading through the Psalms and lamenting, that is worshiping and found myself feeling the heat...the dryness...in the desert...
So, what comes to my mind and to my spirit? I remember:
He will lead me into the desert and speak tenderly to me. He forgives and restores. He makes the valley of trouble a door of hope. There I will sing as I did when I was young, when I was recognized my freedom. Hosea 2:14-15
The troubled areas of my life cannot keep me from entering the place of hope. I am walking through the door - singing the care-free song of a child: God is so good!!
In joy, I share the glimpses of grace gifts given by the Good God whose Mercy endures forever!!

a musical date night with my dear husband
joyful voice of son from afar as he creates
gracious and encouraging words from daughter so near
repotting lanky and heat weary plants
picking a pair of peppers
nurturing hope in the midst of the desert
family birthdays coming in multiples
all grace abounding
clarity and calm in chaos
promise of rest
planning and dreaming time
calls from afar rejoicing in answered prayer
grilling in the evening air
wisdom upon request
willing helping hands and minds - thank you!!
sauteed squash with sweet onions
stretching body and stretching mind and stretching spirit
listening to Words of Life - on the computer!
redemptive and restorative perspective
