Tom and Ben talking and laughing together as they painted the posts around the porch.
"Now that's what I'm talking about!" Tom showing off his REAL farmer's tan - the v-shaped outline of overall straps painted on his back by the afternoon sun.
Hummingbirds bobbing in the breeze on long day lily stems.
First pink blossom on the four o'clocks.
Wildflowers on the table at dinnertime.
Sausages cooked on the grill, roasted potatoes, sauerkraut, and cold beer.
Nate and Martha, back from early class, toasting bagels together in the kitchen Sunday morning.
Reuben passing out honeycomb, dripping with honey... "Here, taste this!" First of summer's golden harvest - Love. Those. Bees!
Line-dried sheets, baked crisp by the sun.
A hand made card on my pillow at bedtime.
Everyone piled together on the sofa for movie night.
Hay drying in the field, filling the air with the aroma of fresh-baked bread.
Three kids sprawled in the floor, gathered around a keyboard, laughing and chatting as they work out the script of a new movie.
Ice cream on the porch swing.
Singing with the saints on Sunday morning...and being reminded - again - of the absolute faithfulness of our great Saviour.
