"Blessed is she, who has believed, that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished." Luke 1:45

Do you remember as a child that there were days that were so complete that you couldn't fathom how life could get better. You played so hard and so long that you were so exhausted your feet felt like lead weights and you body just wouldn't work anymore?

I had the honor and joy of spending the day with my kids last Saturday and we savored every second of it. We went to the State Fair and, although I loved spending time with Kevin and seeing him have fun, I got so much joy by watching Abby experiencing her first fair. She was so exhausted that she barely made it past the fairgrounds on the way home before she was out like a light.

I love the knowledge that I got to be a part of one of those days from childhood that just felt complete, and you couldn't have imagined anything better.

Head on over to Chatting at the Sky for more profoundly normal moments.

Hi!! I love that you are the first comment on my SeeSaw post tonight. Thanks for your comment and prayer for us to experience HIS certain love in the midst of so much uncertainty.

I also love your profile photo and your blog name. And I really liked this post about completely savoring a day. Drinking it in until your thirst for fun and joy are quenched! The state fair sounds like so much fun. I can tell you are a great mom.

Riding the seesaw and pursuing the Center with you friend!

Would that we could all be more like children--kudos to you for recognizing your opportunity to be part of the kind of day that a kid just couldn't imagine being any better.

I like how you phrased Tuesdays unwrapped as "profoundly normal" moments. It's the simple, in the thick of life stuff that really inspires, isn't it?
