It hit 23 degrees here today. End of October, and everything is golden around us. You would think on a day where two out of your four children had head lice one would be bonkers. But when God gives you breath, and God gives you His grace, how can one flip when the wind blows so warm and graceful past you and babies look at the trees releasing what seems to be like gold.
Surrounded by golden foliage dancing to its final rest around you. Not thousands in the bank account but you still feel super rich.
The smell in the air is pure perfection. The smell of autumn whispering "He is good"
The children run around, kart wheels in bare feet and the leaves leap off their toes.
Tehillah, almost three months sits in awe of ash tree dropping what is almost like petals around her. One falls on her face and she almost doesn't seem to mind. Curiosity in her eyes, and wonderment.
You just sit in awe of Gods goodness as you watch these children play and how the weather demands you be still and take it in. These children who are such individuals who will never fit into any mold we would try to fit them into because they were handcrafted so beautifully. To sit back and wonder who they will become as they become adults is mind boggling.
The tree's highlights reflect on all that come into their midst and you are clothed in their colour.
And the repetitive combing through hair does not seem like a hindrance because its in a day like this its obvious to see that God is good. His creation hinting at how glorious it will be when Christ restores all goodness.
Its a taste of bliss and its not far to find when eye lids are opened.
Blankets are laid out on the grass hidden and taken back into the house, leaves dance across the carpet and remind us that His goodness can be carried anywhere because He is in us.
And even though the day was long and daily tasks on hold it was so good. All is well because He is good.
