Week 7

Since this last week we celebrated Valentine's Day  we thought we would share a list of:                            

(in no particular order)

1.  God:  God is love
2.  family and friends
3.  verdant, abundant,  life
4.  water
5.  a graceful balanced curve
6.  our animals
7.  nature
8.  hiking
9.  laughter
10. freedom

We each brainstormed a list and then gracefully combined them.  Something you get pretty good at being married as long as we have.  We celebrated 33 years of marriage on this past Valentine's Day.  WooHoo!  We have always been corny, sappy, hearts-wide-open people, which is why we chose that date for our marriage. Or it could have been because Mark didn't want to ever get in the dog house for forgetting our anniversary.  Which he never has, I might add.

We went hiking on our anniversary.  The mushrooms are bursting forth in varying shapes and colors.  I have no idea what they are called.  Maybe Henry or Fred. 

It's been a bit muddy, and that is a very good thing.  It means rain, and lots of it.  Over 8 inches so far.
Mark  pushed some 'mud' around at the barn this week with a grin on his face.  It brought out the kid in him.  He is reshaping and leveling a bit before we begin the corral rebuild.

On our Google profile ( I didn't even know we had one)  I found a video entitled 'sounds like spring' that I recorded 11 months ago.  Just this week those same sounds burst forth.  Awesome.  We love sleeping to their nightly opera full of romance and love. Well, probably mostly romance.

When you get love right,  you get life right.  Love... Just do it!

 I pray out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.   And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.    Ephesians: 3:16-19
