June Joys

  • On my evening walk I spotted the first fireflies of the season. Always a thrill!
  • The heavy, sweet smell of linden tree blossoms is pervasive this evening.
  • A purple finch showed off his colors to me today.
  • Children in the driveway with paintbrushes in hand, happily creating art work.
  • Pork chops wafting their tantalizing aroma as they cook on the grill.
  • Fresh strawberries.
  • Reading The Sign of the Beaver late at night in our jammies.
  • A big bowl of popcorn and a good movie: I Am David

Most of these summer joys are perennial; enjoyed year after year. Yet the newness of the season makes it feel as though I am experiencing it all for the first time. The mercies of the Lord are truly new every morning. Great is HIS faithfulness!

Sounds lovely.... I must say this summer has 'pulled me in' as well.

Fireflies are my absolute favorite thing about summer!
