Here Comes the Sun

and after one of the coldest winters we have had in a long while...

and a full week of rain...

we - went - outside!

It was wonderful y'all

We played soccer

 We threw a huge frisbee

We played chase

 We walked the dogs

 and we jumped rope.

 I even taught Maggie and Lucy how to make a wish with a Dandelion and blow the petals away.

I remember doing that as a kid and it was good OT for them both as they struggled to blow hard enough to make the petals fly away.

As we were getting ready to go in, Maggie told me that her wish was for Jesus to come and visit...

oh my sweet child...

I told her that Jesus is here and is always here and when I asked her where Jesus is...

she replied "in our hearts."

Yes baby girl - in our hearts!

A few minutes later, she found another Dandelion and told me that she wanted to wish this for her foster mom and she wanted me to blow it so the petals would be sure to fly away.

I made certain each and every petal was gone.

After all that this precious child has been through, the love of Jesus brings this beautiful heart out of the dark of her former life...

She is being restored and what a blessing to be able to walk this with her!



but here comes the sun Son and the Light and Maggie is being lifted up out of the darkness.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12


  1. Love your words and your story He is writing!

  2. Love the sight of everyone playing in the street in bare feet! Great memories are formed from "simple" moments like these.
