I have had brain freeze in the posting department lately, my bloggy friends! Partly because I am staying up too late watching the Olympics with hubs. But mostly because my dear Baby has been out of commission for almost a week now!!!
My computer station is at the end of our couch, which also happens to be prime rough housing territory for two very rambunctious boys. My Baby has been knocked off the arm of the couch one too many times, and we are now waiting for express delivery of a new power pack cord for her. Of course, her battery died before I realized she wasn’t getting any juice. So now I have to be content with commandeering the laptop of the two culprits who wounded my precious Baby.
It just doesn’t feel right.
So I’ve had trouble getting in the mood to write.
It’s feels like I’m being unfaithful!
But before I take the two criminals out for an exciting day of school shopping (which starts in a little over two weeks!! Eek!!), I just wanted to let you all know I’m still out here in bloggy land!
The weather has been just scrumptious here in WV; cool nights and crisp days are feeding my longing for fall. This perfectly lovely weather always fills me with expectation…a feeling that something wonderful is going to happen soon.
This is one of the things I love about God’s creation: the ever faithful procession of the seasons. They just keep changing, don’t they? The Lord knows how I love surprises as well as tradition…He has amazingly rolled both of these into the changing seasons. They always change, but the change is so faithful. Do you know what I mean? Am I making sense at all? Even though I’ve experienced fall 39 times in my life, it feels new every single year.
How does God do that?
Imagine all the times you have watched the sun rise in your life. Does it ever cease to give you pleasure? Does your appreciation for this great miracle ever wane? Such beauty that our hands cannot create. Such beauty that our hands cannot hold.
Perhaps therein lays the mystery.
That which we cannot touch, perhaps, will always be new and mysterious. Just like the Creator Himself.
Well, I’m off to enjoy a day of preparation, though I’m sorely tempted to play hooky and head to the park. Maybe we’ll schedule a little bit of that into our shopping plans too.
Blessings, Dear Ones!
