Dinner, albeit a vegetarian one, is finished.
Both boys (as of just right now) are napping, and it's a quiet house, except for the intermittent cycles of the washer and dryer and the bubbling chili on the stove top.
It's snowing outside, and it's beautiful. How is it that frozen rain swirling in the cold breeze speaks so much beauty and wonder to our hearts? E and I got out in it earlier and had a great and, yes-- cold, time together.
We had a good weekend together as a family, and I'm still buoyed by how sweet the Lord has been to me lately. His presence has been so near, and I couldn't be more grateful.
I hope your Monday is as good to you as it has been to me ;-)
