me, tired? no.... ;) beautiful weekend, though.

This weekend was amazingly wonderfully lovely.
It went by too fast.
Lots of new faces.
Several new, younger families,
I can’t write anymore because my fingers are freezing-chilly and Caleb is building a fire in the cook stove. And . . . I’m exhausted. It’s not the work-out-burned-out tired that comes from raking dead grass and twigs out of a lawn like a crazy person, it’s that kind of tired when you’ve been expounding energy for more than a full weekend, then a ton of enjoying yourself and running around (sometimes quite literally) and it . . . takes energy to be around people. So many people, at that. :) But you know what we all feel when the weekend is closing and we’re packing up?

We wish it was more than once a year.

We wish it went one more day longer.

[I and Love and You; the Avett Brothers]

I couldn’t get into this song a little while ago when I first tried listening.
Now, today, it’s almost like I need it.
(i don't care if you're laughing --and you know me-- i can appreciate soft music. it's something i do as well as that other good stuff...p.s.: no, heather i'm not converting to only classical, etc. this song, i'm putting it on the next remix!!;) heck, steph will love it too)

Lots of those families are like family to us.
And some, they’re just entering the house; haven’t gotten to bond too much in the first year, but next? Well. If they’re there, anything’s possible.
This verse reminds me of what Nancy and Colin spoke of . . .

...but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.
[Jeremiah 9:24]

Glad ya'll had a great weekend. They can be tiring, but refreshing at the same time. Loving your playlist, btw. I must usually have my volume down when I look at blogs. ;)
