Today is Sunday, August 28th.
The weather is nice and cool this evening with a slight breeze. I love this time of the year when things begin to cool down.
My garden is happily producing zucchini, bell peppers, basil and three types of chilies for our family to enjoy. I feel totally blessed by God’s provision. My mint has even come back after it totally died, at least I thought it did. The summer heat was more than I prepared for concerning our garden.
This weekend I photographed a beautiful wedding. I will be spending the week culling and editing photos to get them by mid-month. They were such a fun couple and so laid back. Loved being a part of their day.
Remember our new church? I mentioned at the beginning of the year that God had called us to help with a church plant and we opened our church doors to the public in January. Well, it has been so amazing what God is doing. We are counting our blessings that the Lord called us to worship and serve there. We’re watching Him bring new people weekly and are enjoying the new friendships we are making there.
I am excited about our trip to Kansas in September. I so enjoy family road trips. And this will be our first road trip in our new (used) car. Is it weird I am excited about that part? Tee hee.
Our daughter officially can drive the roads now. We are presently praying and looking for a car for our daughter. She has diligently saved over the last 10 months and we kick some in to help her. This is going to be strange for me when we find her a car. She is the last child I am driving around and then I won’t be needed for that anymore. Okay, it’s bittersweet for me.
In the kitchen, I tried a new power snack food. And loved it! It made a lot giving me enough to share with a friend. Here is the recipe: the Best Power Bars Ever from Deep Roots At Home blog.
Outside our window, we have enjoyed watching so many hummingbirds come to the feeder. At times, we can easily see three or four feeding at once. They are truly awesome to watch.
I am (still) reading “The Sovereignty of God” by A.W. Pink. I am about halfway through. If you haven’t picked this one up, I highly recommend it. It is one of those books I read next to another and don’t rush through. I have also started “A Tale of Two Cities” by Dickens.
I am watching the “Food Truck Race” on the Food Network station. And at church today it was food truck Sunday—where we invite one food truck to come and feed the church lunch after service. It’s a fun way to fellowship.
My new project is a jar quilt I am making for our daughter. I haven’t quilted in a long time so it’s going to be fun to make one after a long hiatus from quilting.
I am thankful for cooler temps, early mornings, fresh green chile, and prayer time.
