Three Beautiful Things

1. New oven. This is the first time in our 23 years of marriage that Randy and I have purchased an oven. We lived in apartments for the first 11 years, and an oven came with the house we've lived in for these next 12 years. It finally went kaput, and we got our new oven installed just in time for Randy's brother and sister-in-law to come. Perfect timing because…

2. Feasts. Randy's brother and his wife graced us with a spur-of-the-moment visit when their trip to Charleston was tropical-stormed out. They are inventive, elaborate chefs, and we feasted for three evenings this week. Great company, great food, and…

3. Red Chairs. This is our new favorite outdoor seating area. For the past couple of years we've been clearing out this area (which used to house a big stump). This year we added these sturdy seats that make me sooo happy, lights in the crepe myrtle, and mason jar candles dangling from other trees. Randy and I sit out here nearly every evening, and it's even better when friends and family are here to join us.

What beautiful things are in your world lately?

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.  Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.  
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
