cutting the herbs and more

 the cutting of herbs was on my list for over a month, and i know i'm well over peak season to cut my herbs. but i did it today and it they are now on the sill to dry. the thyme and oregano at least. sage i still have enough from last year so i just made two bouquets out of the cuttings. it smells lovely and feels just right to have this wonderful sage bouquet in our bed room. right for today, as it is our 21st wedding anniversary. twenty years has it been, that we entered this covenant.
a good time, a wonderful celebration with all our friends and family. good memories and so many years of togetherness. thank you God, for giving all this to me, to us as a couple a family.

it kind a feels like a house of all different kinds of herbal scents. i love it and life does feel full and rich with all it's up and downs. and i'm looking forward to many more of those years together. living in awareness of each other and the grace of God.

though the mountain be shaken, and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace says the Lord, who has compassion on you
isaia 54:10
such a wonderful word to hold onto.
