and so, to always begin again like this…


So a quiet week begins:  Fevers and deep aches here this morning.
Giving thanks to God anyways… always … in everything.

#2767 – #2780 of the One Thousand Gifts that never end…

the quietness of raining Monday mornings

this, the foundation of everything

a break in the rain and trying to combine more of the corn harvest

tylenol and hot tea and thanksgiving Scriptures of this wee little book

soup and sandwich Sunday and a whole body of Christ gathering in homes and doing life together

quilts and pillows piled high

librivox with its free audio books drifting through the house, story for all the aching bodies

scarves wrapped around on fall mornings

praying with my brother over bread and juice of the vine and communion with Christ

that God can use it anyways

cleaning and washing and tidying and homemaking and making it all just simple and quiet

this free little journal app

Blessed by the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation… Ps. 68:19

Bless the Lord, oh my soul….
