“When I am constantly running there is no time for being. When there is no time for being there is no time for listening. … Being time is never wasted time.” – Madeline L’Engle, “Walking on Water”

Running in rubber boots

Raking leaves with Papa Jay– stories and work

Warm winds

Compost we made, and the way it’s enriching the soil


Hot oatmeal

Rich conversations with Blair over Hangouts, and her deep, deep care

Rolling dough for Navajo tacos

The Work of His Hands by Colonel Jeffrey Williams; awe at God’s grandeur

Afternoon bonfire

Skimming my shelves, deciding which book to read next

Sunday night– fire in the fireplace, family on the floor, music in the room, lights gone out

Drew Miller’s song about the Kingdom, “A Child Will Lead Us All

The smell of the wind before rain

Thanksgiving morning and anticipating the Day we’ll feast together without sickness or fear

“Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”

– Hebrews 12:28-29

  2. this list is full of beauty and reminded me of so many reasons why i absolutely love fall. i love getting outside more, breathing deeply, enjoying beauty for the sake of beauty and the Beautiful, noticing how God made it so that death in nature could be a lovely thing, long evenings spent with family, seasonal music, and the joys of wearing cozy clothes. i especially loved your last item on the list: “Thanksgiving morning and anticipating the Day we’ll feast together without sickness or fear”. and lastly, i’m meditating deeply on this sermon i listened to yesterday
    happiest thanksgiving to you, friend!

  3. Mmm, it sounds like you had a lovely November, Bethany. We have so much to be thankful for because of our Father who gives. Thus, every little moment is beautiful as we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. We should never cease to be content. Things that made me happy: beginning to memorize Scripture again, hanging up Christmas lights with my family on our patio, drinking holiday teas, going to Barnes & Noble, reading, and video chatting with my brothers. I hope that you had a wonderful thanksgiving! ❤
