Simple Pleasures

a walk in the park while it's only 84F;

a flock of swallows tittering every morning like schoolgirls at their lockers,
one of them swooping down to carve her initials in the pond;

discovering a heart at the heart of a rose on my table;

dental cancellations for both of us at just the right time;

my Velcro buddy, almost always in whatever bed lies nearest;

watching Allen play wrestle with him;

finishing Kelly Minter's Nehemiah study;

cobbler made from Allen's own garden blackberries, frozen a handful at a time;

strength for a long outing by myself last week;

slowly starting to check off the tasks assigned by my new doctor;

the serendipity of a gift for a birthday later in the month;

my parents' 44th anniversary;

an excellent sermon on 2 John;

understanding friends;

songs known by heart;

if the Lord tarries, the blog's second birthday tomorrow (August 7)

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
Psalm 150:6

(still taking the Joy Dare and counting gifts, these gathered from 6953-7016)
