If Every Day Could Be Like Today

The weatherman said it was going to freeze last night.
I swaddled my three best tomato plants the best I could.
I plan to tuck them in tonight as well.
Bruce had some chopped wood delivered to our house.
We started the fireplace this week...we will again tonight.
I have gardening to week.
There was so much beauty in today.
I couldn't help but see it.
Not just in the beauty of the earth, but upon those in my path.
It showed up in my weekly coffee date with a friend. 
{The one that takes place during Talia's storyhour time at the library.}
And later in the morning, when another friend and I got to catch up...
completely unscheduled. Face to face, not text to text.

All blessings.
I'm finding myself very content today.
Confession: contentment in the dailyness is hard for me to come by.
I must give credit where credit is due.
To God Be the Glory, great things he has done.
And will continue to do.


  1. Beautiful photos, Kimberlee!

    And, I agree!
    To God Be the glory, great things he has done!

  2. I'm so glad you had such a great day my friend ... "Godliness with contentment is great gain" (I Timothy 6:6) ... and I'm in agreement as well "To God be the glory"! :)

  3. beautiful fall photos! glad you could enjoy such a wonderful day of contentment.

  4. Capturing the beauty with a lens and with words makes it all more beautiful and sticks with me.

  5. I bundled my plants too...but decided I was ready to let go of summer and my tomato plants as well (sad face). I'm so glad you had a wonderful day and embraced it!

  6. Celebrating contentment with you - glad that it found you on this Wednesday.

  7. those are good days.
    i wish i could boast of them more, too.
    but lotsa times i just barely make it.
    i look forward to heaven on those sad discontent days.
    there we will always be content (among other things, im sure: :)
    but for now you had a TINY slice of heaven on earth just to remind you of what's to come, friend.

  8. Ahhhh, Kimberlee. I love this. I am with you on finding content in the every-day-ness. But, He is present in EVERYTHING. To God Be the Glory. Amen. Thank you for your prayers. You have truly blessed me and I am thankful for YOU.

  9. Those days are soul-filling!
    It looks like yours was definitely
    a lovely one.
    I also sometimes have trouble finding
    peace in the day-to-day.
    And it's days like those that
    sustain me on those days where it's not as easy
    to find that contentment.
    He is always so good!


  10. me too. at a time when i'm really bogged down in daily-ness, this was good to hear.

  11. That is the next book on my list! I will read it with you!

  12. i have a sneaking suspicion that heaven may look a lot like kansas in the fall.

    at least the block that i'll be living on ;)
