I just love open windows.
They make me think of...stay tuned (to Fave #5) for why I love that image so.
I’m linking up with Susanne of Living to Tell the Story for Friday’s Fave Five today.
Come along with us and post five blessings from your week!
My favorites this week:
1. Anticipation. There’s lots of good stuff going on this summer, and I’m excited about it. For one, a wedding! Andrew (my third son) and his sweet fiancé are getting married in June and it promises to be a great family time. And I’ll have some news later this month about a novel… And I’m going to a writers conference in early June and am gearing up for that. Oh, there are about eleven days left of school, not counting exams!
2. Charles Dickens. I do love Dickens’s work, and the aforementioned son gave me a book for Christmas that he picked up at a unique bookstore in New York. I started it a week or so ago and I’m enjoying reading about the author’s life and times. (Yes, I know…I’m such an English teacher!)
3. College boy on his way home! He’ll be home this week, and I can’t wait. I need to do some serious grocery shopping and meal planning this weekend.
4. Boy pics. I love getting pictures on my phone of grandson Aiden. This week, my son, Jonathan, and Aiden were at Tractor Supply and Aiden was walking in front of his dad. My son looked down and when he looked up again, this is what he saw.
Ah, the spontaneity of childhood! What a boy.
And a bonus here…you may have read here that Jonathan and Kristen have been approved to adopt from India, and it’s not an inexpensive process. But the Lord is providing, step by step, and they’ve just acquired enough to go ahead with their home study—another milestone in the journey. You can read about their precious family and their adoption journey here.
5. A quote:
“I have always loved a window, especially an open one.” (Wendell Berry)
Why do I love the image of an open window? To me, the word “hope” spring to mind. An open window signifies freedom, escape, newness, anticipation, the future. I love it!
Wishing you open windows this week,
