On the Road Again

It's time once again for a good old Texas tour.

My family is going ALL over the Lone Star State for the next couple of weeks.

Family, old friends, fun....and of course the HEAT.

Looking forward to a whole bunch of memories.

See you when I get back!

I am so happy. It rained today.

After a long, hot and dry week, the rain is so welcome.

It is refreshing.




It might be a little humid later on, but I don't mind.

Everything outside will be clean and bright!

Who knew that a long, hard rain could actually put me it an amazing mood?

Oh my goodness.

There is a song that has been in my heart for several weeks now. I sing it. I hum it. I pray it.

"Desert Song"

This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides

And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Love, Love, Love This Verse!

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

- Psalm 37:5-7

Give your everything to God and He will do amazing things in and through you!

A Lesson Learned

I would like to share a life-lesson I learned from my brother today...

Always make sure you carefully survey your surroundings before preforming a back flip on an in-ground trampoline...to avoid putting permanent impressions of your kneecaps into a wall.

Can you say OUCH??

Favorite Moment

I really miss blogging and I am ready to get back to it. I have still been keeping up with all of your blogs and am constantly being encouraged by them. So thank you thank you! For me, blogging has been such an uplifting hobby. : ]

So, by far, my favorite moment this week happened on Saturday night. Well, it all started Friday morning when I babysat a sweet little boy. We decided to go on a walk around the neighborhood when we came across a house that was for sale. There was obviously no one living there and the yard was evidence of this. The grass was higher than my ankles and there were weeds everywhere! But what took my breathe away were the hydrangea bushes in the front yard. Seriously, the only way I can describe how abundant the blooms were is that there were enough to decorate at least two weddings! haha

Well, I was just so tempted to just go up and pick some. So I did. The following day, my friends and I were headed over to a friend's house and decided to stop by the lonely house on the way. We also took a few tools with us; a big blue bucket (filled with water) and a few pairs of scissors.
It took all of two minutes to jump out of the car and fill the bucket with flowers. You would never even know we had been there, because of how many flowers!
It was such a fun little adventure! The result was a house filled with bright and cheery flowers! Check out these pictures!

That's not even all of them!

This hot pink one was my favorite!

I hope your summer is filled with joy and many "favorite moments"!
