SNOW. . .
falling,
swirling
past my window.

I AM. . .
waiting,
watching
it fall below.

BIRDS. . .
chirping,
fluttering
in the bushes.

WIND. . . 
whispering,
blowing
on it rushes.

MUSIC. . .
harmonizing,
floating
through the room.
climbing, descending
with crescendoed boom.

I AM. . .
sipping,
savoring
a coffee treat.
snuggling,
sketching
in the window seat.

A Threefold Cord

This past weekend I had the pleasure of witnessing the union of my friend and her new husband. It made me happy to see how happy they were!

This is a little gift I made and framed for them. I pray they will always look to Christ as the head of their marriage, for a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

New Tastes // mesquite bean coffee


Last Saturday, at our town's annual Fiesta de la Paloma ( festival of the dove ), I bought a new kind of "coffee". The bean-like pods which grow on the mesquite tree are harvested, roasted, and ground for some Texas style coffee! 


It definitely doesn't have your regular coffee flavor, but rather a strong, woodsy taste that took me back to sitting around a campfire in northern Michigan during our camping trip last summer.


It was also neat to drink coffee that grew locally and gave me a feeling of loyalty since it came from my home state instead of Arabia or some other foreign country!


I like it best with a dash of almond milk.

Do you enjoy any coffee substitutes?
