I saw my Aunt today, she was more ill than we realized.
I knew we could of lost her a few weeks ago, but now
I understand even more how miraculous that she is still with us
and at home, where she is very happy to be.
She still has a long road ahead of her and no
one knows what will be down that road but we do know one thing,
Christ will be there waiting for her,
just as He is here with her now.
My Aunt recently found a Nancy Drew book that she had as a child
and she gave it to me; it is in good condition with a dust jacket and is very lovely.
I read it this afternoon after my walk.
I love the old vintage YA mystery books, they were full of a hardy innocence,
a sense of fun and a naturally lived purity that I just enjoy so much.
It was a nice jaunt down memory lane and a shining example of
courage, friendship, naturalness of virtue and glorious clean living.
In the afternoon I took a walk in the sunshine,
down my parents road that after a bit becomes a dirt road
and it was so nice just to walk, and feel the soft dirt or stones
under my boots and just be quiet and enjoy the beauty,
and take pictures of it.
I love blue sky and drink it like water.
I am so thirsty for such natural beauty of a big blue sky,
something I can't see much of where I live in a much more
I will always love the countryside and be glad to be in it.
I am praying for so many things right now.
I am glad for quiet moments and for the hope we have in Christ.
