The school year is winding down and I am so excited for summer! Grilling out with friends, yard games on warm summer evenings, the smell of sunscreen as I try to get two squirmy, excited boys ready for the beach, sand in my car, on my floors, in the laundry…pretty much everywhere.
I breathe deeply in anticipation and can almost smell the fresh cut grass (and see it being tracked in as vacuuming goes from twice a week to twice a day!). Guys. For real. The only reason I’m even writing now is just to celebrate the magic that is summer time. Everything in life just seems to smile peacefully at me like “girl…go ahead…dance around the house and belt out that tune while you throw another load of beach towels in…get it done, we have a snow-less day to enjoy!”.
And evenings…I get butterflies just thinking about it. Smiling across the sand at something silly one of the boys said. Watching my family grow. I’m amazed at the beauty of this life and I don’t want to take a second for granted. These moments…these memories in the making…they make my heart happy. And yet, it hasn’t even entered the heart of man what God has in store for those who love Him. How can that be possible?? I’m amazed. I hope you are, too.
What makes you want to celebrate?
