We have several semi-serious buyers on our house. Looks like it may be a busy summer.
In two weeks, we have a wedding. My youngest daughter (who is my 3rd oldest child) will be marrying and leaving the nest. I will then be the sole woman in a house with 4 menfolk. I will miss tea on the front step, quick runs to Goodwill, long walks and late evening chats. I will miss her sometimes messy presence, her sweet smelling hair products drifting through early mornings, our flash fights by the kitchen sink that always end with, "Well, we cleared the air, lets have tea!" I have loved mothering my girls (her sister got married two years ago) and though I absolutely love my boys, there is a special bond with daughters that I am ever grateful for.
You may not see me as often over these summer months. I will pop in as I can. I will get more serious again in the fall. Hope you all have a wonderful summer. Drink deep. It will fly by, I'm sure!
I am thankful that God gave us these wonderful seasons to enjoy. Each one holds its own unique bounties. I am glad too that they give us a picture of how steadfast and sure God is.
Psalm 74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
Genesis 8:22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
