Across the
street winter rye,

tall and
green, shimmers and ripples

in the
breeze.  Heavy rains bend

patches, large swaths flattened

like giant
deer beds.  A thunder storm

with wind and rain beats down long

rows across
the street.  Paths,

not of
destruction, but of bending to

a stronger
force.  When the sun returns

the bent rye
rises and stands again.

Friends, #SmallWonder will be taking the week off as summer begins and my family and I head to VA to farm sit at God’s Whisper Farm.  We’ll gather again on Monday, June 13th.

I’m super excited to be joining with Andi Cumbo-Floyd and Shawn Smucker to organize a weekend writer’s retreat this summer at God’s Whisper Farm in the beautiful mountains of Virginia.  Visit Andi’s website for more info!

Welcome to the #SmallWonder link-up.  

What if we chose to deliberately look for small moments of wonder, the small sparks of presence, of delight or sorrow, of true humanity in which we meet God?  

That’s my proposal – that we gather here each week to share one moment of Wonder from each of our days.  You’re invited to link-up a brief post about a small moment of wonder.  Don’t worry if your post is too long, too short, or not just right – you’re welcome to come as you are.  

While you’re here, please do take a look around and encourage at least one other blogger with a comment.
