Blessings this Week: 09.09.2016

This week has gone by like... like it included a holiday weekend, no work on Monday, and lots of activity. 

So it went fast. 

And I'm reminded, once again, that life moves quickly and if I focus only on the to-do lists and the plans and crossing out boxes on my calendar, I just might miss the actual "life" part of life. 

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Saturday was a blast, simply put.

Cousins came, bicycles-built-for-two were ridden (22 miles!), and lakes were visited.

The beauty of the lake, waves crashing against the rocks

The friendship we have with this great cousin, and also with the lovely young lady he brought into our lives.

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Cloudy, rainy days, and this dog who gets me out and walking despite it

Bear's "there's-a-TOAD-in-this-grass!!!" face

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Iowa sunsets over our little farm

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Thunder and lightning and the wonder that God's power far exceeds even this

Rainy days and full coffee mugs

My little trees (planted! in the ground!) being watered by the weather instead of by me lugging buckets of water around

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Wet gravel that captures every footprint, and sharing my dog-walking road with plenty of deer

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

A morning thunderstorm

Windmills against a wall of cloud

How amazing. 

...   ...   ...   ...   ...


Here on The Speckled Goat... 

How those two (simple, but important) questions foster integrity, and how living a life of honesty requires us to know who we are
