me, briefly

Describing paradise, CS Lewis once wrote
"Come further up and further in."
In up to my elbows here:
Children, challenge, partnership, beauty, friends, words.

Bean sprouts unfurl on our table
each leaf seeking and finding light.
I can see their roots sprawl.
Thank you Lord. I'm rooted, too.

Join the brevity over at Making Things Up!

You're rooted up to your elbows!
Sort of like potatoes, but prettier.

Such a beautiful post.

Thanks, Melany! Welcome!
Melissa: Perhaps I'm like a rutabaga?

Ah, to feel so grounded! This
is lovely and so very telling
about you. I feel as though
I know a great deal about
you from these few well-chosen words.

Thanks, CJ! I hope this hopefulness is what defines me, everyday :)
