Happy July, Everyone!
I hope you had a relaxing Independence Day celebration, though I suspect it looked different from past years.
My husband spent the last number of weeks working out of state, so I’ve decided to take a two-week blogging break to spend some time with family. I’m sharing a few glimpses of my summer so far. I hope you’ll join me back here in two weeks!
And, if you are looking for something to read and focus on Jesus this summer, I’m giving away a 28-day devotional book called, Finding God’s Presence in Everyday Living to my newsletter subscribers. Click the book cover below for more information.
This is a passage I continually come back to. I love that, when we are teachable, God guides us. He reminds us He is our hope when days look bleak.
I love these happy little flowers. Daisies are opening up all over our neighborhood right now.
I often see small animals on my morning walks. One morning, this baby hopped on the dirt trail I was on, and then tried to become invisible. He almost succeeded too.
I’ve discovered I love photographing close-up photos of small things. And when a flower has raindrops on it? Even better. The droplets are such a reminder of God’s refreshing love for us.
After years of wanting to have my quiet times with Jesus on our back deck, I finally thought to move our table away from the house so I could raise the umbrella. Listening to birdsong is a perfect accompaniment to meditating on God’s word.
These small yellow flowers have popped up everywhere this summer. I’m captivated by their swirling lines and multi-layered petals.
Colorado skies are powerful. Brilliant blue skies or clouds that seem to roll across the expanse . . . they all remind me of God’s power and His creativity.
This double-rainbow is one of the clearest I’ve ever seen. They are truly a symbol of hope. When storms roll into our lives, we can be assured they won’t last forever. And we know God sees us. His rainbows are a reminder He’s always with us.
Tell me, what has been a highlight of your summer so far?
*****Life can be hard. Do you ever need a little encouragement on this journey? I’d love to walk with you. I’m excited to share a 28-day devotional ebook with my newsletter subscribers. Join the journey by clicking the image to receive this gift and uplifting thoughts monthly.*****
