If life could be grasped, held onto like grains of sand in cupped palms. . . wouldn't it just all spill over anyway? All the goodness, all the sorrow, the moments and memories are too much to hold.
I've been feeling especially grateful this week as the extra-amazing things keep piling up, so many graces that my hands are full. I pray the graces and the bounty are spilling out on the people around me. (Our pastor calls this a grace splash party!)
Even the regular things of life seem good, so I'm smiling that someone borrowed the camera. . . and took these photos, which I can appreciate for the glimpse of reality that they are.
