I don’t know about your state, but the mitten always loves to make a show when it goes from August to September and from last day of summer to first day of autumn. It has been raining cats and dogs here all day! And when I checked the rain gauge last, we were at 4 inches which would be like 4 feet of snow in cold weather! XD Definitely feel the change!
It’s the last day of summer and boy what a summer it was! I did so many activities and hung out with so many people! Super happy about that!
With the end of each season I always have the sense that I should have or could have done more. That feeling is particularly strong this year as most of my preferred summer activities didn’t work out due to some unexpected challenges. But guess what? My summer was good enough.
I’m choosing to focus on and be grateful for what I could do. I am grateful for all the local hiking trails I was able to explore with my bro. I am thankful for all times I was able to get to the beach to read. I am thankful for the family camping trip. I am thankful for all the bowling, kayaking, minigolfing and disc golfing outings I went to with my friends. To be honest, I’m absolutely terrible at sports, but I can still laugh about it!
Thank you Lord for all these and the many other experiences I’ve had this summer. May you guide my steps as I enter into this new season. Amen.
Intermittent fasting, 1200 calorie diet, 10k steps daily, ACV, lemon water, focus on eating whole and unprocessed foods… No matter how I slice it, this list is a doozy! 😅
More important than these goals, I want to do something good for someone else this month. It’s easy to stay focused on what I need but God put me here to serve. Not sure what I’m doing just yet but the recommendation from Mother Teresa to start with those closest to you is where I’ll be looking first.
Happy 4th of July everyone! Hoping you have a wonderful day!
America the Beautiful
Oh, beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea.
Oh, beautiful for pilgrim feet, Whose stern, impassioned stress A thoroughfare of freedom beat Across the wilderness! America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law.
Oh, beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife, Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine, Till all success be nobleness, And ev’ry gain divine.
Oh, beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears!America! America! God shed his grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea.
