friday faves :: late again

ok...so maybe i should change the name to 'saturday faves'.  i'm a day late 2 weeks in a row.  you'll find my latest excuse in the faves i share below...

…purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.  Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. 
james 4:8-10

i tried to take a picture of the view from here...this sacred spot where i sit warm and cozy giving my undivided time and thoughts to jesus...long overdue...


the picture didn't capture the movement...
i realized the beauty was in the movement


so i tried a video.  i'm not going to win any awards in cinematography {where are the haun guys when you need them!}


swirling, dancing, frozen fluffs...found tucked away here in the tennessee mountains.


you'll have to wait until next week to hear the story of where i am and what i'm doing...it's almost too amazing for words.  it's been only 24 hours and my cup has long since been spilling over...rest, renewal, truth, community, worship...God's goodness in abundance.


as i write, a few of my faves sit quietly next to my busy fingers on keyboard.


God's goodness...this is my heart's focus this weekend.  
tasting and seeing it as David suggested in psalm 34.  i 'taste and see' in these things...
a warm cup of decaf {bitter cold outside calls for heating up from the inside}, the juicy flavor bursting from a blood orange {countering bitter with sweet}, the grace words of ann voskamp {food that never grows stale}...if you haven't read this book...YOU MUST.
