I forgot to post one of my favorite pictures from our trip to visit my son in the Seattle area. The woods on one of our hikes was tinglyingly (my word) beautiful!! I love the tall silhouettes and the play of light and shadow and gray and green. Everyday I am amazed at God's good gifts---ah the beauty ....the feel of beauty!
I forgot also to mention that I celebrated my birthday in Seattle. I like this thought on aging--it is "Living out the life we were fully destined to live"---in other words--it isn't just aging or getting old--but I am developing into the person God has planned. Not in a fatalistic way; but I am growing into all that God has for me as a person. (pooooweee--I am not good at explaining what is in my heart--that will be one advantage of heaven, eh!!! YES!! we will be able to communicate perfectly!!! WOW--what a thought!
