Picking Berries

July 13, 2011


I soaked in the quiet of this beautiful summer day and pondered the berries I saw growing on the hillside. It was a gentle reminder to me to enjoy simple. 

The simple pleasure of the warm summer breeze,the simple whispering of the trees,the simple melody of the birds joyful song and the simple sweetness of those berries.

 
In the midst of my frenzy to attempt a family vacation for the six of us,I stopped to appreciate the simple. It doesn’t matter where we travel or how we get there as long as I remember to keep seeing all the simple joys of the life I am surrounded by. All the blessings and beauty of creation. A world of simple gifts that God has placed before me.See,hear,taste and smell each breath of a moment created by my loving Father.Simple.

I am off to take my sweet Claire to harvest those sweet berries and enjoy  sweet simple and pause to say…

goodbye chaos…hello butter

  1. I really don’t know which would be sweeter, the berries or that Little Claire Bear.
    God has given you so many reasons to be happy, proud, grateful, and blessed, and you are giving back to Him by simply spreading your love and joy to all who know you. Because of you, I am more blessed.
    I love you guys,, all of you.
