Here's a thought; that God, the King of the Universe, could love you more in just one single heartbeat of time than anyone, anyone, could possibly in an entire lifetime.
Spring has been epic in all of its Wisconsin glory around here this week. Sunday night was a delicious mix of humidity and hail and severe Summer storms, and within 24 hours we had a Winter blizzard appear out of nowhere, blanketing this corner of the world with perfect snow that makes the best snowballs to throw at your dad.
Together we got to discover that little-known ruggedly beautiful place. The clouds broke in that golden hour, the geese were honking and flying in V-shaped formations over us and birds were singing their evening lullaby. The light rays from the setting sun danced colorfully on the glass-smooth pond. The whole world around us was soaking in that wild beauty.
This is why I chase beauty on days when life feels oppressive.
This is why I can hardly bear compelling sunsets.
This is why I love Wisconsin, and experiencing it in all of its rugged beauty with my favorite people.
This is why I have invested thousands of dollars and years of study into my profession.
The golden light from the sun as it slips beyond the horizon reflected off the lake is among the prettiest things you could ever see.

It actually all began as a source of contention. There are few things that the husband and I argue about, but that wall that he claims is his and his alone is one of them. It is the wall that spans the expanse of the living room and dining room and can be seen from almost every room in the house. It's the trophy wall. The mancave wall. The wall that serves as the spoils of hunting gallery. The wall haunted by the ghosts of venison past. And on this legendary wall was an audacious $3.49 goodwill find with flowers on it.
Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
