Welcome, August!

rare & beautiful treasures

Is it funny that my boy is wearing a long-sleeved shirt to welcome August ’round again?   Ah, the beauty of the Michigan summer.  Long sleeves, optional, but often appreciated after 6 p.m.

We are enjoying the last true month of summer-so thankful we live in a world of seasons.  So many things to explore and grow and eat that are unique to each quarter of God’s masterful design.  This August we are enjoying local-grown tomatoes and sweet corn.  We are running up and down the sand dunes.

Be assured, there are dirty diapers and brother squabbles, messy kitchen floors, a parched front lawn and bedtime meltdowns.  Real life marches on, no matter the season.  But today, on this beautiful August afternoon, I lift my eyes to the hills and whisper these wise and holy words:

. . . whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. {philippians 4:8}

brothers at bedtime wmHappy August, dear ones.  What is new in your world?
