What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Butterfly and Some Wonderful News!

My friend Crystal is engaged!

*sound of thunderous whooping and applause*

That was my kiss from Christ today, good news, no, no the very best of news brought to me when I felt the cruddiest at work today! I got to see her lovely ring. It has one beautiful diamond set in the center and then six little ones flanking it (three on each side). We teared up as I reminded her that seven is the number of perfection. Her guy is definitely one in a million, and they are worthy of each other. It is nothing but a delight to write those words!

I have had the joy of encouraging and exhorting Crystal and watching her walk and wrestle with her faith draw on Christ in so many ways. Now seeing Him write this portion of her love story I am reminded again what a Hopeful Romantic He is! "Happily Ever After" was originally purposed in His heart for all of us, and to see her aglow with the love of Him and her guy made my day.

Also making my day was this fellow who nearly didn't get snapped. He was rudely knocked off his perch twice by a . . .bumble bee who body slammed him off the blossom and into the wind. Poor fellow, and I had to wait for him to negotiate the winds and fight his way back to the blossom to finally take a picture.
