When the heat comes, we run searching for refreshment, splashing and soaking ourselves in His good gifts. I turn another page in the gratitude journal, my cup full to overflowing...
Wet, grass-clipping-covered children.
Just hosing them off - a summer shower.
Colorful towels drying on the line.
Watching the flowers perk up after a good soaking.
Godly, fun, energetic camp counselors.
Pizza at Faccia Luna with four dear friends.
Laughing so hard you cry.
A lunch date with my husband.
And his willingness to sit outside a dressing room.
Stacks of clean laundry. Carefully folded by Will.
When my wise husband says around six o'clock, "Let's just order pizza."
Summer rest and refreshment.
Day by day, showered by His grace.
The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
