Reflecting on being a pilgrim and feeling inspired by this verse from the Bible "..To God's elect,strangers in the world,.....who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,through the sanctifying work of the Spirit,for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood:...
from 1 Peter,1:1

re: morning fresh babies
"eating a peanut butter sandwich"(Squirrelgirl)
Dear Julia Charlotte,
Have I ever written to you about how yummy baby girls are first thing in the morning or right after a nap? How their hair is all "poufy" and fluffed and you can just bury your nose in it and nuzzle down into their warm necks?
How their limbs are all soft and fluid and drape so perfectly? How you can lie on the couch on your back and fit their little bodies just so over your chest and it feels like maybe this is the contentedness we'll feel in Heaven?
I haven't ever told you that? Well it's high time I did!
