Time's A-flyin'

Whew, I can't believe it has been a week since Retreat already. It went by so fast. I am still observing the changes that God has made in my heart. I feel stronger in a quiet, peaceful way. And that is good because crazy things started happening before we even left Camp Bradley!

I think my favorite thing about the Retreat was seeing the women relate to each other. I have never seen them appear so comfortable and open with each other. My prayer is always that they would minister to one another because that is what the Church is all about. This year, they did. The baptisms were unforgettable and will be special to me for eternity, I believe.

Today the weather is beautiful, my husband is patiently (yes, a small miracle) teaching Devin how to mow the lawn and I am about to go get groceries and then we are going to go to my brothers and eat the small number of morel mushrooms that we gathered from our all-day search in the sunshine yesterday.

I love Spring. I love God. I love it when everything feels good and right. I have learned to enjoy those times...

I love that you take the time to mention the "small" things, like grocery shopping and lawn mowing. I saw this quote yesterday and have been reflecting on it since - and your post made me ponder it again:

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

Blessings today and everyday!

Love that quote Joah, I think it is true! Isn't faithfulness made of mostly things we think are small? Thank you!
