Summer Fun

Girl Scout party during their summer break!

Pink Hydrangeas blooming in the garden!
Just beautiful....pinks and purples.... all of God's extraordinary colors!

My boys favorite...S'mores. Graham crackers, chocolate candy bars, marshmallows.

Making our own little campfire in the backyard watching the sunset.

G.K. Chesterton says "Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, Do it again; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, Do it again, to the sun; and every evening, Do it again to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.

C.S. Lewis "Joy is the serious business of heaven."

Nehemiah 8:10 "The joy of the Lord is your strength."
