For the love of trees.

They spread forth life like the sun spreads light. Beauty reaching up and reaching out. Spreading underneath the ground, hidden, unnoticed. Pure, green, vibrant. Touching the very air we breathe.
Make me like a tree. Spreading love, reaching up and out, beneath, unnoticed, touching and cleansing the air around me.

Of paint, little girls in smocks and ice cream.

Last Saturday our church left the building – we scattered across town and did projects for The Christian Mission, The Soup Kitchen, yard work, picking up trash, and so on. It was an awesome day of loving our community! John and I got to paint at the Christian mission with some of our friends from life group which was way too much fun.
The girls getting decked out in their little smocks. :)

Some tunes to entertain us as we worked.. :)

Anna and Emily would have to be the cutest little workers ever..

We ended the morning by stopping in for some delicious ice cream at the brand new Deluxe parlor. If you live in the area and haven’t tried Deluxe yet, you absolutely must. It’s so so incredibly yummy.

Shadow me.

He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will to walk is really there He is pleased even with their stumbles. C.S. Lewis

A dancing horse and a blue ribbon.

I love watching my sister perform in dressage shows with her horse. It’s beautiful, artful and graceful. I don’t understand all the moves and the complex steps and lead changes and all.. but even to my ignorant eyes a girl and horse performing dressage is beautiful.

Notice in the picture above – no feet touching! That is dancing… or is it soaring?

I was so proud of my sister and her horse..! She was in two shows and got first place in the first and third in the second!
