Today I think I’ll keep things simple. I’m afraid I don’t have anything too deep or well thought out today. Solveig has not been sleeping well at night for the past few nights and my brain is a bit like Jello right now.
-I’m blessed with Autumn. The landscape is so different now as there have been a few nights of frost. The trees seem to have woken up to Fall, and the fields have changed from lush green to a tan-ish gold. I love the fresh air, and the smell of Fall.
-I get to eat homemade double chocolate brownies as I write this. Don’t be jealous.
-I finally figured out what was going wrong with my “Dirk” sweater pattern. Now that it’s figured out, it’s just a matter of busy work: finishing it up. The brain block has been pushed through and I can move on.
-I got to see a lot of sweet family and sweet friends this last weekend.
-I’m blessed that a financial burden, and I mean burden has been lifted off of the shoulders of someone I love recently. A settlement with a large debt was reached and this is another answer to prayer.
-My kids continue to grow and be healthy. I don’t want to take one day of that for granted.
-A really fun first day of Sunday School. I’m not sure what possessed me, but I offered to teach a 2nd/3rd grade Sunday school class and I had so much fun. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen some little people experience things like John 3:16 or learning to look up Bible verses, or seeing someone hear the story of “The Good Samaritan” for the first time. It’s easy to start to believe that these things you always just know. No, they are taught just like everything else. It’s fun to experience that for the first time…again.
