“All is well.”
Trying saying it. Even out loud. Just to see how it feels.
Last evening I went to a fun but bittersweet farewell party for good buddy Ellie Covington (who is Texas-bound, Galveston).
After a torrential downfall forced the party onto the carport, the late-stayers ventured out onto the dock by the marsh and saw this …

Of course, we all had to get a little silly.
I quickly texted the pic to my fam and got this response from daughter Emily (mother of grandtwins Madison and Mathew) from the other side of Savannah:
“We can hold it too!”
The joyful promise of a rainbow!
May the excitement and happiness of children be with us all, especially Ellie as she makes her move to the next successful stage of her life!

The last post was spiritual, so here’s another one that deals with “YES.”
“God tries to create a joyous YES inside you, far more than ny kind of no.”

What are you saying yes to this late summer?
Suggestion: Try reading this morning’s quote out loud. See how it feels to you. If it seems a little fake or unreal, that’s fine; as an experiment, simply try it on.

Here are a few pics I took of beauty I’ve seen (and NealEnJoyed) recently:
This I know, and I know FOR SURE: We find what we are looking for. So, what are you looking for this Sunday morning?
