I live farther away now, in our new-to-us school house. The drive could be a burden, but I am trying to see it as a blessing. Further to listen to podcasts or worship music on the radio. Further to be quiet and think. Further to just be and observe. Though it doesn't always feel like that on the drive to the grocery store...
I gave found myself quickly falling into the rhythm of winter. Suddenly the urge to knit all.the.time has arrived and all that yarn I have been looking at is slowly being turned, one stitch at a time, into pieces of love to give away.
A and I are found here, by the fire, with a good book in each of our hands most nights. This school house is such a blessing!
(On a complete side note- wow, blogging has changed! Posting from apps on my iPad and uploading pictures from the cloud! So much easier than the "dark ages" of firing up the laptop, connecting the camera, and editing photos!)
Tomorrow is my 27th birthday. It seems like just yesterday I was celebrating my 24th birthday in this space. I have to say that in my life I am extremely blessed with wonderful friends, loving family, a warm home, and a wonderful job.
Tomorrow I've asked my friends and family to celebrate by sharing one random act of kindness. I'm imagining the joy that twenty seven acts of kindness will have on the world.
