Quick Post

For whatever reason, my first post about this happened to post under June....if you want to see it it is titiled ' From the Mouths of Babes'
Here are a few more things that my little sister has said over the past few days.

" When you're babysitting, you can do anything, like even...you could burn the house down or like...break something. If I did that....I would just get in trouble"

" Boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider
Girls go to school to get more smarter"

I dunno....they made me laugh :)

Hope you are enjoying your summers! Mine is pretty fantastic so far, spending lots of time on the boat, getting nice and brown...thankfully no major burning happening yet :)

Answers and Happiness

These past 2 weeks have been amazing. Time off....you have been missed

The weather hasn't been great, and I'm blogging from a kitchen table surrounded by kleenex as I seem to have caught yet another nasty cold. But I'm happy. The sky may be cloudy, and the wind might be churning up the lake, but I'm happy. My family needed to get away from life for a while, and it's been an amazing time.

Spending lots of time inside, meant not a lot to do, so I bought a cheap little notebook and I've been writing in there while waiting for the small moments I've been able to grab with internet connection. This I simply had to share. Couldn't wait.

A few days ago I got a text message from a friend asking me if I had ever considered going somewhere to help those less fortunate than me, and if I would consider going with her. I have honestly never felt so excited about my future in my entire life. Something I've been thinking about for the past 6 months is finally going to happen. Hopefully in the next year.

I've felt a little bit lost over the past few months, school wasn't going as well as I had planned, and all my carefully laid out plans were no longer realities. And yet, in the midst of all my doubting and worry, God still has a plan for me. He's in control, and I've got to be willing to let go, and trust.

Hoping all of your summers are going amazingly!!!

Au Revoir!

No more blogging for me. At least for a while. I'm headed out to our summer cabin and plan on spending my time with my family, not my computer. It gets enough love during the school year.

Plus, if I have to be honest, my heart really isn't in this anymore. I have amazing friends who have so much more passion for blogging, and their posts are witty, and well written. Despite my best efforts, I compare my blog to theirs and find it lacking....and can't seem to keep up enough to work a little bit harder.

So adieu, so long, farewell. Until next time. Whenever that shall be.

Oh, and this doesn't mean no more blogging ever, but it's going to be highly sporadic and not very regular in any sort of way. I can't promise that I'll even blog until September, but I can't promise I won't either.

So enjoy your summer!

Summer Skies

I wanted to share some photos I took of the whispering twilight stage in which the clounds were the brilliant dancers, the colours vibrant, the wind gentle and cool. Those are the moments I love the best.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils.
William Wordsworth

Ya, I know it's not a daffodil and not at all golden, but it sort of made sense.

Another cloud quote that I completely agree with:

A promise is a cloud; fulfillment is rain"

The rest of the days

Day 27 - Your definition of the meaning of life.
We were created to serve our Lord. And we can find meaning when we find our own duty that He has given us to fulfill on this earth.

Day 28 - A moment you remember being completely happy in and a description of why you believe you were.what is your definition of hapiness?

Probably the day that I made profession of faith. I was going through a point in my life where I was confused as to why God was calling my family to another church. I didn`t know what the next few years were going to hold, and I was scared. In that moment when I stood in front of church and agreed to serve my Lord, it was a moment of promise, a promise from God that He would be with me whatever path I choose in life, and a promise from me that no matter what I`m doing, and where I`m doing it, my goal on this earth is to serve Him to the best of my abilities.
Day 29- What you live for?
God. Family. Friends.
Day 30 - Ways you believe you have grown over the past thirty days?
I`ve learned to be more patient. It`s something I struggle with, and I truely believe that God has given me more strength to be able to help people with more patience. Especially now, that`s something I`m going to need.
