Well, tonight is my last night of Summer break. As I look back, I am very pleased with the time off. Tons of …..
pool parties, friends, food, church, finished our HOME STUDY, filled out our immigration paperwork, vacation with the hubs, reading great books, blogging, enjoying every minute I got to babysit, organized some things around the house, stayed up late, got up early (thank you internal clock), studied the Bible, vacation with my parents and brother’s family, late night coffee dates, watched my daughter study everyday for her first college classes,practiced Spanish, saw friends who I don’t usually see, took a picture everyday to document my summer (which is pretty good for me…I usually quit that kind of stuff by day 10) And last but not least…..I just enjoyed the little things in life.
There were times that we were a little stressed and as usual we didn’t get everything done I had planned. I even started to get frustrated about that. I sometimes put such high expectations on myself that I only set myself up for disappointment. We had a wonderful break from work and those little projects will still be here at another time. And as usual Jesus backed me up on this today. I love how he speaks at just the right time. Here is what I read today after feeling a little defeated.
“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God ’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.” God , your God, says so.
Amen….this is going to be an amazing year!!!!
