upon a sunday (reunion)

knapsack of treasures
open on the floorboard
handwoven cloth
and
a soccer jersey
marble chess pieces
and
a wooden horse
all smelling of another world
my husband
my missionary husband
is home from guatemala

 

and for these i am also thankful:

220. visiting an old friend with a new friend
221. john 10:27 - 29
222. nana-cooked welcome-home meals
223. hank's songs. yes. he writes them.
224. jack looking over his dad's shoulder at pictures
225. reading glasses. my first pair. glad they exist.

ann for 1000 gifts

    Kendal, I am SO enjoying your writing...you truly have a gift from God. I, too, have a teenage son so I could definitely relate to Friday's post. Thanks for sharing your gift!
