I might never will.
We have had a wonderful summer trying out Chuck’s first weeks of retirement! From me, in my purple cap, I bring you a summer recap…
vacations+day trips+bonding with old friends+forging new friendships+family togetherness+new serving privileges= Blessed Summer
Back to the 4 donuts at Madsens, the 3 Reese’s Chocolate DQ Blizzards in a row, the too many boxes to count of Cheez-its along with the too many slices of pizza . . .
Struggling to get my act together.
I have days where I am on target on eating and off on exercise.
I have days where I am on target with exercise and off on eating.
I have days where I am on target with eating and exercise. (Can you hear the Hallelujah Chorus?)
I have days where I am off target with eating and exercise. (Sigh.)
What’s a girl to do? A girl who has plumped past the “skinny jeans” and is too afraid to hop on the scales.
Put one foot in front . . . keep stepping.
In between the steps of our summer, there has been enough pain, fear and sadness to drive me time and again back to the Scriptures.
The Book of all comfort and direction. The Book that offers salvation and then wisdom for the way.
I find Faith Declarations to meet each need. At every corner. To bolster my faith.
“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16
Drink deeply from the ancient truths. I have this summer. More than any other previous summers.
And for that reason it makes rating this summer: one of the most precious I’ve ever had.
Blessings from your sometimes blind and stumbling friend but one who just happens to be well acquainted with her Guide, Jesus Christ. I hope you’re traveling the same path because I sure love company! (If you’re not, I’d love to introduce you to Jesus. My email is open, as is my screened porch!)
A pep in those steps!
