Are you ready for SUMMER?!

9 06 2010

I know I am!  Karen and I returned from the beach from a quick retreat and those 3 days spoiled us!  We’ve been in the middle of an incredible whirlwind of activity with Kara graduating from college, moving to Hawaii and starting her new job (and life) there.  Shane and Shannon informed us we’re going to be grandparents and they moved to Boston.  They both have jobs there now (Starbucks and Edible Arrangements) and are loving it!  They ride bikes with Daniel around Boston most days in their free time and they are really enjoying being back together after a long time of being apart.

Yea, I’m read for summer!

Here’s what I see summer offers us…

1) Lots and lots of sunshine (preferably at the beach but sunshine anytime works)

The Beach!

2) A little slower pace (gives you time to reflect on your life and mission)

3) Possibilities (for vacation, recreation, meditation)

4) Family (just a visit or a weeks vacation, sounds like fun)

5) Travel (Hawaii or Boston are our options.  How ’bout you?)

6) Growth (time to read the Bible more than normal along with any good book)

Don’t let this summer go by you without taking time to grow closer to Jesus and closer to your family.  I know I need both of these things in my life NOW more than ever.  I get so busy with work and other activities that it is easy to forget the things that are MOST important.

Pray for me as I have a lot going on at work along with 5 weddings I’m doing (love doing these) between June 19th and December 4th.  Life is good – NOW, live it good by
