Another Day in Paradise

Another day where we have far more avocados than 8 people could ever eat.

Another day where our neighbors celebrate at the highest possible decibel level (this time it's a wedding, and what's not to celebrate about that?).

Another day of thunder rolling over the ridge, echoing off the hills in the east.

Another day of bright colors and songs that make you dance.

Another day where everything in our yard grows inches per day (weeds and seeds alike).

Another day with the privilege of serving the under-privileged.

A day sewn in faith, hemmed in prayer.

Another day full of Grace.

Thank you for sharing those lovely thoughts. I can just picture you there in your tropical paradise. :)

I wish you could send us some of those extra avocados! I looked at avocados at the grocery story yesteray -- a small one for $1.49 -- and walked away.
