yes. more phone photos. and the truest reason is that phones are handy. the sad reason is, my child did something to my real camera and it is a great pain to focus on anything. hoping it can be fixed!
the season of hibernation is so close i can taste it. "fall" and winter in north dakota are perfect for hot drinks, cozy quilts, candlelight, crafting, favorite books and films...and stories on cd.
the chronicles of narnia is, by far, one of my favorite series. i think perhaps, i need to write a post on how deeply it reaches into my heart and breathes life into my soul. having it read aloud to me as a child was amazing, but not so wonderful as reading it myself as an adult who now knows jesus and identifies him in those pages. "safe? of course he's not safe. but he's good. he's the king, i tell you!"
related, my sister shared this with me. what an artist!! i mean, of all the scenes to illustrate, wow. just beautiful.
elijah has always loved bugs. his favorites lately are caterpillars and spiders. he is obsessed with spiders. thanks to a certain episode of sesame street he saw on netflix, he thinks they are fascinating and fun. i agree, as long as they're fake.
i am a sunset person. can. not. get. enough. sunrise is equally gorgeous, but it's usually so crazy here in the early mornings that i can't step out to see! sunsets are easier to catch. the end of the day is usually when we drive to get patrick, or even time that i can slip out for a few minutes of alone time. praises. every single setting sun amazes me. mild or extravagant, they just speak to me. how about you?

"If our religion be of our own getting or making, it will perish; and the sooner it goes, the better; but if our religion is a matter of God’s giving, we know that He shall never take back what He gives, and that, if He has commenced to work in us by His grace, He will never leave it unfinished." charles spurgeon
happy weekend! xo
