It’s time to wrap up the highlights from August, starting with a Sunday afternoon drive in the Foothills of South Carolina. We walked through downtown Landrum and grabbed a picture on a bench in front of a perfect teal brick wall (my favorite color)!

The rest of the afternoon was enjoyed from the comfort of in-car air conditioning! 🙂 Those Carolina blue skies are just stunning, aren’t they?

Last weekend I took a quick trip to Tennessee to celebrate my sister’s birthday. I’m really thankful that I can easily travel through two states and enjoy family time – I know that’s not the case for everyone these days!

My mom made an amazing birthday meal, and everyone enjoyed the chocolate raspberry cake that Alli made for her own birthday!

The peaches have been especially good this summer. Paul and I both have enjoyed eating our share of them every week!

I enjoyed reading through Hebrews and Isaiah this month (here’s the Bible reading plan I use). Some of my favorite verses from my reading were these:

  • Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. Isaiah 28:16
  • So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Hebrews 6:18-19

I shared one of the August devotionals from New Morning Mercies in an IGTV video, which you can watch below.

And now…September is coming! The fourth quarter of the year is my favorite for so many reasons. Although we do not know the future, we can “have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us” (Hebrews 6:18). ❤

  1. Beautiful! Yes that is one thing I envy the other side of the US … the ability to travel easily between states.. in CA it takes a full day of driving to reach the border! And a beautiful quote and story time from Hebrews 🙂 Happy weekend!


  2. You’ve had an eventful and exciting August (almost like a “normal” summer month of fun!) And I have enjoyed following along (and joining as I can) with all the ladies on your IG challenge this month, too! Here’s to a blessed and eventful September as well. Bring on the pumpkins:)


  3. What a sweet month! I’m glad you were able to be with her sister for her birthday party. It seems like it’s harder to travel for out of town birthdays now so when we can it feels extra special. I am sure she loved having you there. Her boys are getting so big! Hope September is another good month filled with loads of happy moments.
