February Loves

A list of all that I've loved in recent days...

Driving down a dirt road and watching the storm roll in over the mountains...

Pulling into the driveway just in time to watch the first flakes fall.

The oldest brother taking the smallest brother on a ride in the golf cart around the farm.

The littlest one's found the spot for his cup... He keeps it there all day long and sneaks a drink every so often.

Three handsome boys with fresh haircuts.

Meeting a lovely woman at the park... How she sat down next to me and poured out her soul and the many ways that the Lord had miracles in her life over the past... the way she had no idea that her story is now playing such an intricate part in my story.

A boy taking responsibility for his actions like a man.

Glass bottles and flowers... a gift for no special reason from the Cowboy.

The Charmer carrying around his "wolfie" everywhere he goes. (I don't even know where he got it from, but he LOVES it, and keeps it near throughout his days.

Notes from my treasures.

Sleeping long on a Saturday.

Seventy degrees on a Wednesday in February.

His first words... On Monday, "cup." On Wednesday, "bear." And then today? "Shoe." I think "shoe" might be my favorite. He says it with an extended "SHHHHHH ew!"

Stitch Fix box at my front door. :)

My man telling me as he brushes by me in the kitchen that he likes it best when I wear my old jeans and a t-shirt.

The Spunky One winks at me and I wink back and it makes us both smile.

A personal, tender, intimate journey through the scriptures each morning in the dark.

The farm table surrounded by friends and treasures and friend's of treasures__ Sloppy joes with gooey American cheese and green beans and french fries.

The Charmer's Heavenly Angel displayed proudly on the fridge.

Girls Running and laughing in the farm fields.

A huge pile of oatmeal cookies!

The Cowboy and My Siah plowing together early one morning.

A sweet little Valentines Party at a friend's house.

A day in the city with the ones I love most.

Eggs Benedict.

Date night @ The Home Depot.

Laughing hard with the Cowboy.

Learning, once again, how to trust without borders. 

I've been talking long with the Lord about this one this week:

"It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."
