The (not so) Scenic Route

Monday, June 18, 2012

What a weekend this has been.  

Two exciting packages came in the mail with some music and a cook book that I've had my eye on for quite a while. I went to a farmer's market, got some sun, and drank way too much lemonade at a cook out. 

Saturday evening, a friend brought over a beautiful bouquet. I have to confess I'm not a fan of flowers in the house. I don't like the way they smell or the mess that they make. Even so, I do think they're pretty. 


Some things that have been making me smile lately are:

* Time with friends - getting together and catching up is great.

* Cooking out - hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, salads...It's the food of summer.

*The ironies of life and the things that people come up with - sometimes all you can do is LAUGH. 

*The fact that God is in control and I am His and He is mine. 

    “For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for His treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth."(Deuteronomy 7:6 ESV)

This was written about the Israelites, but it is true of us today too. God chooses His people and they are what He uses to communicate His greatness to the world. We are His. We have purpose. We are chosen and set apart. 

What makes you smile?


  1. You might be about the only girl in the world who complains about flowers. lol.

    ...but, I hear you about the mess they make. I rarely toss them before the get gross and moldy. It's so bad. I'd just hate to toss them prematurely though.

  2. a week with fun mail is super rad. amen... what a gift we have in Jesus!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
