“To everything there is a season, a time to every matter under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
It’s no secret that summer is not my favorite season (I like winter, fall, spring and then summer), so the end of July brings us that much closer to my favorite seasons! Summer doesn’t last forever – fall is coming! I don’t have a lot to say about the past month, so I’ll just share a collage of pictures from July that pretty well tell the story of what I enjoyed this month.
I didn’t realize until I was putting the finishing touches on this post…almost all of these pictures include food! Ha! Somehow I managed to keep up with my weight loss during July, in spite of a freezer FULL of ice cream. Here are my
food highlights from July!
1// July 4th
2// Paul’s Birthday
3// Summer Treats – Ice Cream, Peaches and Tomatoes
4// Fun Dates!
Just as it’s true that summer doesn’t last forever, here’s another thought that’s encouraged me this month: trials don’t last forever. If you’re going through a hard time that seems more unbearable than summer heat and 100% humidity, remember that it won’t last forever. Autumn is coming, with its cool breezes and crisp mornings. Even if your trial feels very permanent, take heart in the hope of an eternity in heaven, free from heartache and trials. Life will be sweeter someday – Jesus said it, and I believe it!
