I’m being so abundantly blessed recently all the time.  It is only by the heavenly graces of God that I even stop to recognize them, and I am so thankful for his gentle nudging to drink it all in. Honestly, I think I owe this grateful attitude to the weather..fall is definitely my spring. It is when I feel renewed, strengthened, peaceful and so aware of His Presence. We sure endured A LOT of rain last week, but I have to admit I loved every minute. I spent a lot of time reading a good book, under blankets on my couch, burning Yankee Candles, and in serious conversation with God. And after the rain, I am feeling the growth and seeing the good.

My cup is overflowing. I have to share.
~Sleeping with windows open. the fall breezes. being woken by the Sun
~Autumn Wreath Yankee candle. Oh my goodness—so comforting!
~A phone call from a kindred spirit :) I love friendships where distance makes the bond better. I love friendships based on prayer and support for one another.
~Novenas to favorite saints

~little girls who run to me for a hug, proclaiming “I missed you, Laura”
~Wednesday adoration with the two loves of my life

~Memories in my heart AND in photographs of my Aunt Angie’s beautiful garden. God’s glory in the beauty of these flowers. Especially this bright, beautiful flower. It’s name?! Pope John Paul II rose :) A hybrid tea rose named after man who was the glory of God.
