Earth's Glory

Today we leave my parents' house. It is bittersweet for all of us. I will be offline for several days until we get things straightened out at our new place.

As I go to pack and sweat and create a new haven of blessing and peace, I'll leave you with these beautiful words that capture, ever so fleetingly, the emotion I feel as I walk upon the land we have been given....

"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise
somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a
shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal
sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gleaming,
on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn,
as the round earth rolls." -- John Muir, 1913
