Words from one wiser than I...but still learning.

Ann Voskamp is one of my favorite bloggers. She's written a book that I still need to read, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. Her blog is so inspiring and encouraging. I really wanted to share this post especially. Do click through and read the whole thing, and enjoy her wonderful photography!

when you’re figuring out how to really love » A Holy Experience: "When the Farmer comes in after 11 from the field, he carries it in on his grimy shirt, a few pounds of dirt, and I wonder if he feels it, the weight of the gritty world on his shoulders.

He finds me in a straight back chair at the window in lamp light. There are pages on my lap. He has no words.

Before I can find mine, say anything, he kneels on the floor, takes my feet in his hands."
