Made some wonderful memories with family that came in from out of town this past week! Add four kids to our three and the house was full of non-stop activity! Shopping, rowdy bowling games, bike rides, picnics and paddles boats at the lake filled our days. The visit culminated in sharing the divine decadence of smores over the BBQ! I love that space where time gets suspended as you let go of your normal routine and release the day to new adventures and leave the laundry and housework for another day!
We are definately in the wind down to the end of summer with getting everyone ready for school etc! I snuck in some time in the studio today and created an original altered book/journal which I listed on Ebay today. I have kept all my own journals since I was a small child. Life is an incredible mystery and my own personal journals have bore witness to the continueing story of my own soul. Its a miraculous thing to see how God has been weaving your life's story as you look back over the pages of recorded memories, questions, mountaintop experiences, struggles, and heartaches. He has always been trying to reveal or teach me something through the themes that spill across the pages!
