The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

I'd have never guessed how much I would enjoy having a river view from the house.  No idea how long we will be renting here, but the location rocks.

Deer graze right out there and birds travel the waterway as though it's their own secret airway.

Unpacking is tedious.  My hands hurt from handling cardboard boxes - that's a lot of box wrangling!  This house has a large cedar-lined storage building.  The previous family used it as a pool table room.  I'm stacking it with boxes of books that don't have to be unpacked, extra furniture and household assunder-y.  Everyone agrees that this house is ugly but now that our things are finding their places in it, it is looking better, and certainly more like home.  Today I'm going to unpack more boxes and hopefully hang a few pictures.  I am especially hoping to find my surge protectors so that the living room lamps can illuminate, the duplexes are in the weirdest places!

Anyway - if my eyes stay too long on something I don't like, all I have to do is look outside.  Outside is gorgeous.  Twinkle lights draped in the trees is high on my to do list!

I can't imagine how soothing it would be to have a river to look at when you need it.

My daughter is in the same situation, unpacking and unpacking and trying to get the kids and cars and all registered for this and that in a new state. She said, "It's an uphill road."

But you will get to the top! And then, a plateau, from which to gaze on a restful view and get some deep rest.
