Small Graces

 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...
...sometimes they slip by without notice
sometimes they are very hard to see
other times it's very clear when they are happening to me" 

homemade strawberry shortcake

i like my couch neat - decorated with throw pillows and a blanket "casually tossed" over the back of one side.
my kids, on the other hand, they prefer the couch this way.
it drives makes me a bit crazy.  but this pictures also warms my heart and makes me laugh

sweet red-headed nieces 

times two
*you can see more pictures from there visit, here

brother team work... after about the sixth time helping them i told my sweet boys
the only way they were getting back on top of the splash pad's giant ball statues was if
they did it themselves. it took them a good five minutes but they were determined.
they strategize, pushed, pulled, and cheered each other on. i got the gift of hearing
them celebrate: "we did it! you did great! this is the best!" 

finding my boys like this
they are best friends - it make my heart explode with joy

my rain lovers

a yard and porch filled with neighbors' generosity... jeremy and i are both novice
gardeners but we are trying to fix up our yard a bit this summer and we've have been
blessed (and sometimes a bit overwhelmed) by our neighbors' support. 

a running partner

the honor of celebrating the beginning of a new family

.and at the same time being reminded what a blessing it is to have this amazing man by my side
