Let the cosmos praise your wonderful ways…. Search high and low, scan the skies and land, You’ll find nothing and no one quite like God. The holy angels are in awe before him….
Delighted, they dance all day long: they know who you are, what you do they can’t keep quiet.
Your vibrant beauty has gotten inside of us.

Psalm 89: 5, 7, 16, 17 MSG

Under the big yellow sun…

This last weekend, Dan, Noah and I enjoyed the generosity of a friend who owns a unit at the beach and had a few nights away at our favourite spot by the sea.

The weather was perfect for the beach and we spent hours at the beach, exploring, resting, building sandcastles, cubbies and Dan braved the freezing water to go for a surf or two :)

Noah our beach boy was loving the time away and my favourite Noah quote from the weekend was as we were about to head back home we stopped in for some gelati by the beach….as we were walking along Noah exclaims, “This is the best ice-cream in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!” Later as we sat on a rock eating our ice-creams a little sigh comes from Noah and “Mmmmm….scrumptious!”

Jumping for joy!

Simple things bring joy when your three like jumping on the trampoline, dancing like crazy to old records, picking flowers and enjoying a babycino :)

When your a bit older simple things still bring joy…like happening upon a rainbow on a dreary day, getting a card in the mail, eating good food, laughing, hearing your three year old say,”that’s fantastic!”, having a good nights sleep, feeling the sand between your toes and the hug of a good friend…

What simple things bring joy to your world?

…For the joy of the Lord is your strength….
Nehemiah 6:8

Fire anyone?

Noah has taken to bringing various toys to bed each night to “cuddle to sleep”. This has included various dinosaurs, cars, helicopters, trains but my favourite is his fire-engine :)

…corners of ‘lil cuties sleeping den…
When Noah has trouble falling asleep we find him sleeping on his red chair :)
