I was greeted early this morning with Sweet William snuggles. This is a simple pleasure that I know is fleeting all too quickly. Lots of "Mama, Mama!" Lots of wet kisses. Lots of pudgy hugs.
Then it was time for one of my dearest Sabbath pleasures...walking to church. Two of my boys grabbed each other's hands and ran as fast as they could for the 1/3 mile to church.
And me? I just strolled. Enjoying the sights, the passing friends in their cars, and the privilege to begin my time of worship as a walk...to pause, to thank, to praise.
Lord, thank you for a quiet Sabbath.
For blessed children.
For beautiful creation.
For bountiful care.
