The river was going to be for dipping toes. It became their oasis. With each step they chose to explore a bit further. It was a fabulous outing with dear friends and truly a glimpse of three boys embracing boyhood!

Summer in Laramie is beautiful!

Living this beautiful life, one day at a time.

Time passes.
We are always going.
It may be an outing;
The library.
The grocery store.
The park, a friend's house, church.
Time continues.
Each day passes.
Breathe deep.
Take each one.
A gift.
For time continues.
It is precious.

He grows.
I am humbled.
To be his mama.

Hello. Not many faithful followers, but I need to blog. I need to write. I need to grow. This is for those who will one day share my story. My fervent prayer is that it will be worth telling, worth learning from. Life is rich. It is unexpected. It is vibrant. Life takes many roads and we get to pursue those paths as chosen. This is good. I'm often challenged by the freedoms we're given. I sometimes wish I would choose to savour deeply ALL of these moments. The exciting. The mundane. The sad. The joyful. Life is good. I'm SO fortunate and oh so blessed! God continues to stir. To move. To speak. I continue to sometimes listen. Sometimes respond. I speak far too much! My heart's desire is to be HIS. His alone. This causes tension in the depths. It causes an aching sometimes unbearable. Why do I choose to fight this beautiful dance He chooses to offer? He is holy. I am not. He is pure. I am not. He is faithful. I am not. Today I choose Him. Not me, but Him. I will fall. I'll choose to get up again and follow. His leading is far beyond me and today I rejoice in that! He is God! I am His!
