The First Tulip

On March 6, my first tulip started peeking out from the green.  I planted the bulbs back in October, I think, and I'd been eagerly waiting for this -

I every time I see them, I find myself smiling inside over the fact that God created these beautiful flowers - not because He needed to, but simply because He's a good God who loves to give us beautiful gifts.

Grace again...

Little Moments

Moments of ordinary life -

"The Space Cadet", his dad called him that evening.

Tiny little hand holding mine...be still, my heart.

Saturday mornings are for chilling on the couch in your pajamas.

Ordinary life is not always lovely - sometimes one must kill creepy critters like this.

A still, quiet Saturday in my little place.

Jessica, a student, gave me this fascinatingly fuzzy little plant.  I haven't been able to figure out what it's called yet.  Any clues?

My floor always needs sweeping.

I neglect it shamefully.

From our small group one week - "What do we have when we become God's children?"

And we could have gone on so much longer.

Small group prep

Candles and plants - two things that make a place feel like home.
