small things

with great love.




i think one of the biggest problems with blogging is covetousness. at least for me it is. i look at other blogs and love other people’s flowers. sewing. travels……etc. etc. but as Christians, i know that we have a higher calling. a calling which demands that we find the lovliness in our own small corner of the world and that we thank the ONE who sends that lovliness our way. unfortunately this particular season i am in is not one of great skillful progress. this season involves lots of kid/teenager supervision. running to and fro. loads and loads of laundry. endless cooking and dishes. (i did just move, i keep telling myself).

but thankfully, with HIS grace i am finding peace in the midst of it all. at least for today.

i don’t have a lot of fancy projects to show off. i sure wish i did. i have a million things in my head, but i’ll consider myself lucky if i ever finish this one pot holder i started in early may. but don’t those potatoes look delicious? dinner was great tonite! i grew those chives. and that darling little violet was showing me her pretty face as i swept the back porch this afternoon. everyone has an abundance of clean clothes. our tummies are full and i am pretty tired. .

 i guess maybe i just needed to see something beautiful, from my own life, in print. to remind myself of how blessed i am. and i am sure you are too….so goodnite friends…though you will probably be reading this in the morning. which will be perfect because then you’ll have a whole day to think of your own small things. and the GREAT love which is behind every bit of it.
