Multitude 10.31.11

Giving thanks to God in community for His gifts ...

crisp autumn breezes
rustic benches for lakeside sunsets
sticks and stones, hills and streams - offering hours of fun
acorns and rocks, clamshells and driftwood
bright sunshine that warms to the soul

friends who are chatty - willing & capable to carry conversations along
friends who are quiet - adding worth to each lengthy exchange
friends who love enough to smile and say, "stop it!"
friends who laugh easily, yet sincerely
friends who are practically perfect in every way

emphasis on listening
super great ideas

okra and tomatoes, squash and potatoes
slow-smoked chicken with hand-knotted dinner rolls
Sunday afternoon drives down quiet winding roads
coffee with dessert
the re-creation of recreation: family camp
