the beautiful.


soak up this weekend. soak up the blessed heat. the sunshine. the friends. the hot dogs and the sweet tea. the sleeping in, if you're lucky,

this week hasn't held nearly enough snuggles. or late night movie marathons. or long conversations into the morning under the covers. instead, school started back up. and work was harried and tremendous. and my prayers were short and tired and life slipped by.

but no more, i say. starting with tonight. see that handsome man in the picture? we've got a hot date with the DVR and later, the front porch swing. with tomato sandwiches and cheerwine slushies. and i don't have to be me until tuesday.

it's a beautiful, sweet, country we live in. and i'm thankful beyond belief for the people who make sure it stays that way.

Beautiful post! I love the way you write...short and inspirational. You have so many good points in here. Life can get in the way of prayer and the simple joys....we all need a break sometimes.

I miss the summer days of yore when "summer" meant such free days! But even though time flies nowadays, I'm glad you and your sweetheart have found some relaxation time! I come to appreciate relaxation time more each day :)

Happy 4th of July!

I am so grateful for our country, the United States of America, and I am so grateful for you! Hope you and Robert are having a wonderful fourth of July with your family and friends!

Love you!

Front porch swings are an excellent reason to live in a house rather than a flat.
