Colorado in September is brilliant. And personally, my absolute favorite moments are standing still under golden aspens, watching the leaves dance to the cool mountain breeze. Watch a leaf closely, and I swear you can see them flutter with joy. Each one dancing to their own tune. But I think you know this...and you know that it makes my heart happy. Thank you for this...
Like David in the psalms, I can't help but to consider all that you built. It's a continuous brush stroke, filled with surprises of love, laughter, and beauty. Nothing else fills me like the way you do. Nothing. Yet everything gets in the way between us. Too many days are going by without you. I am dried out. I am parched. Why do I do this to us? Jesus, my soul thirsts for you.
...no. The most beautiful definitely goes to the relationships you have built over the years. There is over 100 years of relationships between the Pasquel, Causey/Lay, Hendrix, Beckham, and Lawler families. And in that time, you have been carving out one of the few masterpieces of my life. Jesus, let me continue to meditate on this creation amongst a few more I am aware of. This is Living Water. These people you bless me with quenches my soul.
