when emily's dad teared up for a moment during his speech at her wedding.
the sun and warm strong wind during a church picnic today, families all around.
when a beautiful man from church shared about how good God is, in the midst of the deep pain and difficult time he and his family had recently, and watching his wife and kids cry in their seats and seeing other people dab their eyes as well.
the way my church staff address and talk about our church like we're family.
jon foreman's songs, the cure for pain, and the house of God, forever.
josh garrels' lyric, "it's gonna be alright. turn around and let back in the light and joy will come, like a birdy in the morning sun."
the way alyssa talks about prayer.
that sacred time on friday, most precious to me, when i got to eat breakfast in my grandparents' kitchen with both of them, and grandpa's prayer over it before we ate.
grandpa's voice and how he talks about God.
thinkin about my dad buddy. just such a good man, it brings me to tears sometimes!
the way my diva basil plant perks right up when i water him. pretty representative of my spirit when i spend time with God.
getting to stand beside one of my best friends while she married a really good man.
reagan and taylor and michelle and elizabeth... four women i didn't really know before yesterday but ended the day as good friends!
how God picks me up every. single. time i realize i fell off the track and am self-centered and whiny and entitled again. He cleans me again and in love says, "look again, daughter."
taking communion today with beautiful friends who know they need Jesus too.
