31 Days: Glory, Glory

This was a busy day, one that started with my youngest missing the bus. (It happens about once a month, and I don't blame him. It's hard to get up at 6AM.) I had to be at work early, so I just got myself ready quickly, dropped him off at school and started things out with coffee and eggs at The County Seat.

I don't think I could get through a morning without coffee.

I wouldn't like to try.

I went non-stop all day long, and the hours flew by. One meeting melded right into the next, and before I knew it, 4PM had arrived. It was a productive day, but I'm concerned that without any time to process, I'll not be as effective with the outcome of all those meetings as I ought.

I was home long enough to thank Max profusely for cleaning the kitchen.

We went to the 2013 Powder Puff football game, to see my senior son dress like a cheerleader and be thrown into the air repeatedly.

It is terrifying, and I'm glad his cheering career is over.

Here's what I noticed:

Glory, glory. It was stunning. No filter, no editing, straight from my iPhone.

As my friend Connie said, it's an interesting juxtaposition: the silly fun of boys dressed as girls, acting goofy, and the intense, supernatural beauty of nature.

I noticed the beauty first.

The rest, I was just living.

It was a good day.

Love the sky. Sunsets fascinate me.

I love those moments when as I look up at the sky, it feels like it's just me and God in that space. Oh, the beauty...
