August was a lopsided month – I had a full weekend of fun with my mom and sister, but the rest of the month was just full of busy things. You know how that can be!
The first week of the month, I was still in Olympics mode. I watched as much of the coverage as I could and enjoyed it all so much!
Our oven saga continues – and now we’re in the process of shopping for a new one. The cost of the part needed to fix our oven isn’t worth the risk on a nearly 10 year old appliance. I’m on the hunt and I’m thankful that I can take my time to find a good deal, since the stove top on our current oven still works.
Every once and a while I let myself order lunch from Panera on a work day. I have their free coffee subscription, so I can order lunch along with my coffee. It’s so nice to pick it up on the way to work, enjoy a coffee in the morning and a delicious salad at lunch! My two favorites currently are the green goddess cobb salad and the Mediterranean bowl.
As I mentioned, the highlight of August was our weekend trip to celebrate my sister’s birthday. You can read all about where we stayed, what we ate and where we shopped here!
Although summer is my least favorite season, I do love how our yard looks this time of year. I’ve also enjoyed my watermelon themed door by the carport!

Here’s one of my favorite passages from this month’s Bible reading:
“He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children so that a future generation — children yet to be born — might know. They were to rise and tell their children so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God’s works.” Psalm 78:6-7
I don’t have to wait until God does something “miraculous” for me before I start praising Him. God is just as worthy of my praise when I’m standing at the bottom of the mountain looking up as He is when I’m standing on the other side of it!
Whatever mountain you face today, wherever you are in the climb, God is worthy to be trusted and God is worthy to be praised. Look back at what He has done for you. Look back at who He says He is in Scripture. Put your confidence in the God of Jacob and help someone else do the same.
