A Few of My Favorite Things ~ October

Chilly air. Knitted scarves wrapped around the neck. Cocoa hot and steamy. Books read with fury. Tea sipped with a friend. Man strength to pull out beams in a house being transformed. October babies-there are three in my family. Leaves looking like they’ve been dipped in watercolor. Rabbit Room packages. Fires, in which we burn parts of the house. Fall Break. Bible Studies. Camp Dixon. Apple Crisp. And the closeness of Jesus’ heart.


A Few of My Favorite Things: iGovern

New friendships. California sun. Party meetings. Galas.  Late night games of Truth-or-Dare. Air Force One. Worship time. Wing Chapel. Campaign strategies. Mock senate sessions. Words of wisdom soaked in. Camp counselors. Minions reporting. Cupid Shuffles. Ambassadors to rescue. Mysteries to solve. Fireworks. Jam sessions. Sprinklers to be run through at night. Notes taken. Lessons learned.  Encouragement for those who cry. Laughter around a pool. And spiritual discussions with new friends.

These are a few of my favorite things.
