Well, we decided to make a trip to Erie, Pa this summer for a vacation.
I could not be more excited.
Then, I found this huge tub of summer clothes for my five-year-old the other day. I kept wondering where all of our summer stuff went to, and then after rummaging through the basement, I found this tub with all of his swimming trunks and shorts. I am in heaven with it actually but now it’s finally time to go through his drawers and fish out all of the winter/fall things that summer won’t allow.
I still haven’t found (a tub) or anything of any sort for myself mind you. So I have no clue where my shorts are. I actually broke down and ordered a pair online the other day, just in case they don’t magically appear before our mini break.
I love vacations. Mainly, because they include family. This year we are going with my husband’s parents to the lake and I am overjoyed to show my five-year-old something close to what a vacation looks like and one that includes the water.
I was always a water baby and every year we would always go to Myrtle Beach, SC for our summer vacations. Do you have a special place that brings back memories like this? Of growing up, cruising around on gold carts, and eating ice cream under the fireworks? I’m sure lucky to have had two parents that were teachers growing up as we were always on the same schedule and it made for easy nice summer vacays.
It has still been raining here a lot and the cicadas are at full swing and buzzing with fierceness. There voices can be heard for miles and it made me think this morning how far my voice could carry a message if I really wanted it to. The Internet is a pretty far out way to spread the gospel but I pray that I can be as bold as a cicada. They are small, but their voices get heard. I pray that I share the word of Jesus without compromise and that you feel obliged as well. Summer vacation, or not, I praise JESUS.
Prayers for a safe and fun day even if it may have to be inside today. I plan on getting a ton of laundry done and I’m not looking forward to it, but I know that at the end of my boldness I’ll be rewarded with the feeling of accomplishment. I thank God for his mercy, that is new each and every day. It’s time to get up and move. There is no time like the present to make things happen. And Amen to that!
“They…began to speak the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:31
