Oh, Sweet Simplicity

He's the most intriguing storyteller I've ever known.  He talks slowly, with passion and sweet remembrance like every tale is the best tale he could tell.  A curious kind of voice with which he speaks, a voice that inspires us to ask for more words.  You just feel like you're living inside this story with all its action & emotion & chaos.  With every story he tells, good or bad, it's all made him who he is today - looking at us with bright eyes sharing a part of his world.  It's all changed him for the better, crafted with such care by God's design.  With our storyteller, no silence is uncomfortable - we just wait & wait for more words to overflow from his past.  Today & everyday after, we recall upon his stories and dwell over how pleasant it is to live this life.

Life is simple here. The firewood burns quick, the conversations run long, & the stars always shine.  Night after night, it's all the same.  A new kind of love for life, love for simplicity.  Stories from long ago & memories of how things used to be linger long after it's been said and done.  Gentle laughs & thankful hearts embrace this place we call our home.  This is how you love.  This is how you live.  This is what it means to be alive. Happy Thursday, sweet friends!
