His wild wonder...here with us!

We didn't really know we'd end up here when we headed towards the lakeshore to pick up a winter coat for me via craigslist. (Thank you, craigslist!) It's a good thing we threw our cold weather gear into the car just in case. We certainly needed it!

Nothing like the sunny inland area, the Lake Michigan coast was being blasted with whipping, cutting winds and lake effect snow. A winter wonderland! His wild strength on display.

And we have the privilege to run around in it and marvel at it and brace ourselves against His power and feel it on our faces and behold His glory any time we want!!!

This song was running through my mind, rolling around over and over, how He's HERE with us. HERE! Then and now. "It's still a mystery to me...."

He's here and we celebrate. And, back in the car, thawing, melting snow soaking pants, cheeks bright red, I spout out, "Stop! Back up!". Giddy, we all hop out of the car and Lucy and I laugh and cheer on loud as Daddy and boys chase wild tom turkeys through the woods, up snow covered sand dunes, Daddy nearly catching one....not knowing what he would do if he actually did get a hold of that huge bird.

And I pour out thanks....
#653 - #665


unexpected adventures
snowflakes on their eyelashes
"Dad, fresh deer tracks!"
heated seats
songs that draw me to You
cozy, twinkling tree lights greeting us home
"Time to light the second candle, Mom!"
kids lined up at breakfast restaurant counter
chocolate chip pancakes and hash browns
sludgy hot chocolate with whipped cream
curled up on couch with fuzziest of blankets
a week with no plans
grace for every breath
