Everyone loves new kitten pictures, right!? 🙂
God’s Glory Outside My Window
We are at the BEACH. We were so, so blessed to receive a free week at the beach and oh how my heart and soul have needed this time!! God is so good and so faithful. Such peace in being here!
Giving thanks for THE BEACH. 🙂 Seriously, we weren’t going to get a vacation this year and God blessed us anyway. Couldn’t be more thankful for this time.
In The Schoolroom
So, I suppose I will start leaving off this section? My kids GO TO SCHOOL in less than a month. Oh my. I’m still having heart palpitations about it if I think too long and hard. 🙂 But, mostly I’m at peace.
From The Kitchen
Ummmm. Not much to report from the kitchen.
Around The Home
Well, I’ve given my kids time off from their loooong list of daily chores and realizing they won’t be able to do that many chores once school starts anyway. I’ve been trying to just jump in and do things as needed…we have been spending an hour on the weekends getting the house back in shape and that really has worked well. I hope to continue that once school starts.
On My Nightstand
I’ve been trying to dig into fiction this summer as a little “escape” and mini-vacation from my back porch. 🙂
Ok y’all. I’ve seen that so many people love Anne Lamott. Well, this is the second book I’ve read of hers and it will be the last I think. I tried so hard. I actually finished this book because I kept hoping that all those people that love her books would be right.
This one isn’t fiction, but a sweet friend blessed me with a copy of this book and it is WONDERFUL. I’m only a few chapters in but it is so good. Perfect summer/beach read!!
This is our next book club read. I’ve just gotten to the point where “I’m in.” I was told this book had a slower start (more historical and roman battle type stuff) but several of my good friends LOVE this book and put it on their “favorite book of all time” list. So, I’m excited to get farther into it on vacation! One of MY all time favorite reads was Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, so I know this one will be good too.
So many blogs, so little time! I haven’t been reading as much (or blogging myself) lately…we’ve just had a stressful/crazy few months! Since starting piano lessons and trying to cram in lots of summer fun, my computer time hasn’t been quite what it was a few months ago.
Praying for my kids fervently. Hoping and praying that all these changes in our lives will show some fruit and blessing sooner rather than later. I know it’s selfish to ask that, but it’s my mama’s heart’s cry.
Plans For The Coming Week
My blog has been a bit quieter than usual…I’m just finding my new place, my new focus, moving away from homeschooling, but still wanting to share great resources with my readers as well as encouragement for those struggling. I feel like I’m starting to get my groove back. 🙂
Happy Birthday, America!
