“It is always the simple things that change our lives. And these things never happen when you are looking for them to happen. Life will reveal answers at the pace life wishes to do so. You feel like running, but life is on a stroll. This is how God does things.” -Donald Miller

Tonight we had the pleasure of witnessing a beautiful rainbow out in our front yard. This is probably the 4th or 5th rainbow since we've been there, and because of the large open field in front of us, we actually get to see the beginning and end of it.  The little jaunt out in the rain made my heart so full. I love how God can pull you out of the mundane and sometimes tedious life and give you the gift of something fabulous. Then take that gift and multiply it by the ability of seeing it through your children's eyes.

And thanks from today's encouragement from my sister-in-law Vanessa, I actually just sat down and edited all of these pictures. Too many of my kids images are piling up on the computer never to be edited or printed, and it's time we make some changes there.
