call to worship

IMG_5188

two of my sisters are here for three and a half days. the best part about our visits, and any visit with my family, is all the talking that happens.  i call it The Great Conversation.

me and liz got to talking about our childhood backyard.  she’s working on bringing a pear tree, the peonies, and daffodils into her present yard, for her four girls to enjoy.

“wasn’t it amazing?” I asked her.  the outhouse, the barn, the oak tree, the hills, the mountains, the leaves, the jungle and electrical fence that shocked when you touched it.

i think of all the places God has given us to live, and i am amazed beyond words for all the beauty and space.  for all the world’s brokenness, there’s still the beauty of the earth.
