Yes, It's good you have a blog.

'Chores finally finally done' make me appreciate chores more.

A simple and powerful sermon.
Thank you, Sara.

Amen & amen.
I haven't been back to your blog for awhile - but there was so much good stuff waiting for me here! I so know that feeling about the sight of the house at night from outside, it is magic. Sounds like a really good book you mentioned.
Your ode to Ruth reminded me how cool it is that the mystery is not over once you find out the gender, pick a name or determine the coloring...they keep unfolding - & surprising/enthralling...and I'm sad I missed your birthday - I always forget to look at the cool FB thing that tells bdays!
Now for my vote for my favorite junk drawer blog so far:

Mr. Friend. I love him. And your story. Irony - we are all blades of grass, when he and his brother go..and someone else moves in, even if the old barn falls into disrepair & comes down..his place, will remember him no more(and none of the 12 of his family).
But - God knows the movement and daily health of every sparrow - yet holds us each as far more valuable than many birds. He can still see and hear the loud family, see newborn Mr. Friend, even his mother as a little girl playing in Sweden. God remembers. The earth may think we've disappeared, - but He's just come for us. Happy several days after your birthday - love from, Rachel
