who is excited about fall?!
there has been a few days here in nashville this last week that has allowed me to taste fall weather. i think i was beginning to think a day without sweating was nearly impossible!
i moved to nashville almost exactly 10 years ago this next month. i remember the smell of the crisp air and the fiery colors striking my pupils.
i am ready to open the windows of my house during perfect sunny weather days and to close them at night and pretend the candles that sit in my fireplace is a fire. i am ready for sweaters and boots. i am ready to hear the sound of leaves crunching under my feet.
i do not want to rush these summer days that are still hanging around but i will gladly welcome fall's know, whenever it's ready:)

"climbing high mountains"

"So faith looks up and sails on, by God's great sun, not seeing one shoreline or earthly lighthouse or path upon the way. Often it steps seem to lead into utter uncertainty, and even darkness and disaster; but He opens the way, and often makes such midnight hours the very gates of day. Let us go forth this day, not knowing, but trusting."

"Lord, I'm climbing high mountains trying to get home..."

my elephant

my mom gave me a card for my last birthday with this photo on it. she said the elephant reminded her of the dreams i have and in time will come forth. i believe this, and in the journey of seeing dreams unravel before me, i am learning how to live, to wait, and to love and enjoy the life and the incredible blessings that come in full every day. i do not always see these gifts each day, but in moments like this, where i can write and think, i look at yesterday and see the beauty that inhabited it.

i would love to be able to see this beauty in every moment.
