It’s the time…

to make summer plans

to see the flowers bud and bloom:

to go on long walks

to bask in the sunshine

to work, to play

to officially graduate from high school

to have my senor pictures taken:

to study hard

to sweep up old leaves from last fall

to weed the landscaping

to play frisbee with the boys outside

to eat lunch out on the deck

to run 5ks

to read my Bible and other good books in the stillness of the morning

to keep the windows open and invite the sunshine and fresh breeze inside

to play volleyball in the front yard

to anticipate have only 3 more weeks of school to go 

to celebrate the 11th birthday of this handsome young man:

to mow the lawn

to see the trees begin to bud

to meet a friend for coffee

to eat delicious biscuits made by Austin:

to watch Dr. Who with Wesley

to study some more ;)

to attend wedding showers and be privileged to witness the joy of friends getting married

to lace up my running shoes and hit the road/treadmill

to find this in my room (I wonder who that could be…)

to enjoy being a daughter at home

to love each other

to be thankful for each blessed day

to live in the moment

life is sweet. God is so good to give us the different seasons of life, each with different joys, trials and challenges. I want to appreciate more the season God has placed me in right now, making the most of each and every day….because the seasons will continue to change over time.

    It all sounds lovely!
    Especially the bit about Doctor Who…:D
    We’re getting Josh into it now – quite an accomplishment, since he rarely enjoys watching things that aren’t completely, strictly correct from a real world point of view.
