learning:: to rest. the unforced rhythms of grace.

loving:: this picture from may, unlimited texting, faded hydrangea that are beautiful in a whole new way, glow-in-the-dark bracelets, and summer cooking.

living:: these days of puppy love and studying for a summer course in a slow way that sometimes feels like sitting still but produces not-too-shabby results in the end. (see learning.)

laughing:: at josie's antics. the puppy, that is. have you met her? this little one chases spinning vitamin bottles across the floor and loves nothing more than an open dishwasher. unless it's the 7 inch space between the china cabinet and the wall. hmn.

leaving:: memories and thrills and dreams in the only Hands that can hold them safe. i'm letting go in this economy of God's in order to truly hold on. to Him, as He holds all i leave to Him.

leaping:: into the last month of summer.

landing:: squarely in awesome grace. it's the only way. (but why do these Arms catch me by surprise every time? oh me of little faith. i'm landing again in the life-long lesson of trust.)
