“I know, O Lord, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.”
It’s the season that stirs my emotions like no other. It takes me back to a time and place where the days were long and the cares were few. The memories…oh the memories! They seemed to last forever. As a child, my days were full of hide ‘n seek with the neighborhood kids, fireflies at night crammed into a mason jar, and the taste of homemade ice cream churned by hand. As I entered my teenage years, I loved pizza and movies with friends, falling asleep to the sounds of the late sixties and early 70’s playing on my radio, and those years introduced me to the guy that would become my forever love. Those summer days…the days and the memories that make me feel forever young. Although now, you won’t find me playing hide ‘n seek or catching fireflies at night, I still love the days of summer. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons that I love this season!
By now, you know we love the outdoors, but especially our little haven here known as our garden. You can find everything from foxgloves to tomatoes to zinnias to squash right outside our door. We spend our Saturdays weeding and doing the chores that it requires, so that our evenings may be spent relaxing and enjoying our meals al fresco style!
