The tiniest sliver of a moon is hanging in the night sky tonight above our heads--golden-y perfect--it makes me dream of places I want to see and of the person I hope to become.

Somehow, when I see the night sky and catch a glimpse of that loveable old moon, I get shivers all the way down to my toes. God becomes more real to me than at any other time. I can hear His voice whispering...and it isn't hard at all to imagine Him standing right beside me.

Stepping out on the little patio outside our back door to give our kitties their nightly "snack", the warmth of Life and the beam from our back yard light spilled over me. Feet bare, I stood there for a moment or two watching the fireworks a distant neighbor was setting off, hearing the laughter of their voices come echoing across the fields...humming into my ears.

Life is so vibrantly beautiful. It goes by so quickly, sometimes it's hard to take it all in at once. It helps me to write it out. I don't want to forget a second of it, and somehow the process of scritching it all out on paper, or tap-tapping it out across a keyboard, helps me to remember.

Clare, you are ever too nice! *blushes*

I'm so glad that I've come to "know" you through S&S. You inspire me...and though we've never met, I consider you a friend!

cherishing the moments - what we are supposed to be doing rather than rushing too and fro - I recently read where someone called it living life with wide margins....
