Everything Old is New Again…

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!

    I have missed you friend.

    I have to sadly admit that I take sunsets and sunrises for granted. I blaze through my day not even paying attention. How sad…

    Thanks for the reminder.

    I, too, love the season changes….especially fall.
    I never cease to be amazed by a sky that is the most beautiful shade of blue and full of white puffy clouds.:) You just can’t make that stuff up. God out does himself every time, amen?:)

    Hugs to you!

    Well, you haven’t been MIA as long as me. I finally posted today and it’s been OVER a week…ten days I guess.

    I love fall. I love summer (except for the yard maintenance by myself–complain, complain, huh?). I don’t care for winter…wearing coats in the car just to walk into a building to take them off. haha. I’m not a fan of being cold. Heck, I run my little space heater in my office at times…they keep it cold in the building.

    Hope you have a blissfully beautiful day, Laura.

    Laura-I have missed you too but I have been gone so much lately that I have not been on my blog much either. Traffic has really slowed too. bummer.
    Enjoy your last days of summer, we will be shut in from the cold weather to blog plenty in the near future!
