Cracking open new books.
My very own "Teacher's Workday" - stealing away for a weekend day of planning in my husband's (very quiet) church office.
New lesson plans.
A morning at the Zoo with Dad.
The Genius Bar at The Apple Store. Truly genius.
My little Mr. Fix-it.
Not having a finished basement. Whew.
Summer evening light.
Their summer-streaked hair.
Losing a tooth excitement (in the middle of the worship service).
Help in the kitchen.
My ESV Study Bible.
Ice cream sandwiches at the pool.
A house for a dear family... in the neighborhood they wanted and the price they needed.
Early mornings along the Potomac.
Running across the Key Bridge, rowers quietly passing below me.
15 miles. (The farthest I have ever run!... and over halfway to 26.2)
Friends who just stop by.
Re-reading favorite books.
My mom's encouragement.
A cool, breezy evening at the Cathedral.
Cartwheels in the grass.
An extra leaf for the table.
Shared family dinners.
After many years, hearing a song again.
And remembering my grandmother's voice.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
