A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".
"these are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...
they are a reminder to the heart there is more to life than meets the eye...
He is in the small graces....
small graces pointing me to the larger one...
little glimpses of the kingdom come..."

up for last minute visits.
|a sweet sibling moment|
|sleepy mornings filled with cuddles and books|
|stumbling upon (thanks to maca) free balusters to replace our rotting|
ones. and the two strong men who got them put up in less than a day
|mini man also worked very hard|
|a busy tongue during school time|
|finding the toilet paper roll replaced - it's a step in|
the right direction
|surfing apartment therapy's website and seeing that they shared our |
ocean party. later in the week they also included our snap-painting in a
post. i love their website so i was pretty excited both times
|also on the web, my sister-in-law made her business official! |
it's such a joy to see her using her amazing talents to bless others
|annual consignment sale treasures. the evening also included some|
pretty good thai food and great company
This past week has been a busy one. I subbed a lot and on top that have started babysitting two days a week. Several times in the last couple days I have felt overwhelmed. It frequently seems like there is tons to do and not enough time. I am trying to make it a point to be still for bit each day. When I do, I'm always amazed at the rest and peace the Lord provides. I spent one of my lunch breaks hanging out at a nearby park and was suddenly blown away by the beauty around me: singing birds, the sweet smell of freshly mowed grass, the splendor of the trees...all small graces. It was impossible not to feel refreshed.
