|Our favorite view - is the "front porch look'n in"!|
As I meandered through town with my niece yesterday the porches caught my attention. Some with worn furniture, some with the newest look and others with no sitting places at all. I wondered do people use these porches - do they gather there to love and laugh...To decompress the cares of the day? I'm guessing our front porch gets more use than many, a byproduct of having a mini "girls dorm" of sorts. It is where discussion moves later in the evening - where cordial glasses filled with red wine paired with billows of E.'s fruit scented cigar smoke and candles set a stage.
What will the topic be today girls?
Theology of Food and Celebration? (menu big at our house
Check Lists for Potentials?
Anyway, two thoughts as my eyes peruse through the warm animated faces and over to the asian lilies buds, tall begonias, freshly blooming hydrangeas and flowerless but brilliantly green new Guinea impatients:
Ahh! I didn't water again....
and more substantially...
The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of the Lord stands forever. - Solomon
