Because sometimes you feel in a fog, because sometimes you feel overwhelmed by the reality of life, because sometimes you just need a reminder of what life is and why we choose to place our hope in Christ. Because there is no other answer.
That's why I'm adding to my list of gifts today on this grey November day.
beautiful, peace giving, uplifting music
fresh bread straight from the oven with my aunt's rhubarb jam
lamplight in the living room
my sweetheart practicing hours and hours
encouragement from friends' lives
my man putting my baby to sleep when all she needed was her daddy's arms
his arms wrapped around me
his prayers over me, over us
letting go and just doing the next thing (knowing this wisdom from my Mom)
fresh laundry dominated with pink
I feel better already. Want to join in?
