8 Things

I have been a huge fan of Rachelle for years, soaking in her wisdom and her great ideas. I am enjoying a nice chunk of online time tonight (this morning) and got caught up on her blog, and while there saw this great idea. And since I often have a hard time pulling something together on Friday, I'm going to shoot for my 8 Things to post on Fridays. And so, here goes:

8 Signs of God's Presence this week

1. Tiny, tiny, tiny little shoots from my Stella lillies breaking through the ground just today, so tiny that I had to look really hard to spot them.

2. Susan making the very labor intensive Mayan Cafe' lima bean recipe for the community on Monday night.

3. Shameka's passion- this week all focused on the Invisible Children.

4. This song, so beautiful that I want to raise my hands in the air - L'Incoronazione Di Poppea: Pur Ti Miro by Christina Pluhar, Nuria Rial & Philippe Jaroussky Monteverdi

5. Chiayim's dimple so deep that I fall into it every time he smiles, even when I don't want to!

6. A Spring day so warm that I was able to sit on the front porch and re-connect with all of my "porch friends".

7. In a whispered prayer said with Kendra as she heads out the door on a day when her heart was anxious.

8. In this quiet moment while I can hear kids and partner and dogs all snoring, the click of things rolling in the dryer, and I am reflecting on God's generosity.

Chiayim's dimple....love that one. Should I know why it's 8 things and not 7 things? I took a look at Rachelle's blog...so easy to get lost in there for a good long time and what a beautiful lassie she is.
