And what a lovely morning it is at my cottage here at the lake.
For some reason, my eyes are wide open today.
I'm seeing the "details".
Sometimes I take for granted the blessings, and beauty that abounds around me....
I'm looking a little closer today, and paying attention to what's going on in my world.
I've been blessed with so much.
I'm not talking about the material things of life. Although God has given me the things that bring me joy in that area of my heart as well.
The relationships that He has birthed in my life are the "things" that I am looking at in depth this morning.
I find those born of the Spirit, are the ones that have lasted through the good AND the bad times.
The friendships that have all the details.
Do you have a friend that you don't see often? But when you get together, you pick up right where you left off the last time you were together? A person that you can say anything to, and she understands? Someone that loves you, no matter what?
Do you have a family member that is just as much a best friend, as they are a sister, or mother, or daughter, or any form of relative? or even your husband??? giggle.
There are so many things that I unintentionally miss.
Like complimenting a friend on her hair, her smile, or how much I love her laugh.....details...her sweet spirit.
I need to get back to communicating my feelings to the people I care about.
Tell them that they are a blessing in my life.
That I love them.
Make sure my grandchildren know that every little thing they do, and every detail about them brings me joy.
That brings me to you, dear blogging friends.
Thank you for visiting here at the Lakehouse. I appreciate all of your kind comments to the posts, and photos. I feel I have found you to be kindred spirits.....blessings, and very encouraging.
Blogging gathers you into a new community of people....one that I enjoy being a part of. xo
