In the Psalms, David writes about the heavens declaring the glory of God. I think the night sky, full of stars, might be the loudest proclamation the sky can make. There’s nothing like sitting under a sky full of stars to reinstate a proper sense of our smallness and God’s grandeur.
2. Friends who know your story
There are few things quite so comfortable or that have the ability to make you feel loved as an old friend to whom you don’t have to explain yourself. I am blessed to have several of these.
3. Changing seasons
I am so thankful to live in a place where we experience all four seasons of weather in a year. Sometimes cyclical changes become monotonous, but the transition from one season to the next is always exciting and refreshing. Right now, I am loving the brisk fall air and the return to wearing jackets/boots/scarves.
4. Starting a painting
Last week I (finally) pulled out my oil paints and am getting started on a new, not-for-class painting. There is so much potential in a freshly prepped canvas, and the best kind of responsibility in putting brush and paint to it.
Why? Apple cider, apple pie, apple juice, apple butter, caramel apples, baked cinnamon apples, applesauce, et cetera. That’s why.
