That beautiful season, the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
And the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I didn’t plant these zinnias, friends! In fact, most of the seeds I planted this year decided not to grow. 90% of my zinnias this year are volunteers and they are glorious. God is good. No matter my shortcoming or poor seeding efforts, He always surprises me!
June was a big month. We traveled to see my parents in Florida, hiked in Tennessee, and marveled at the Lord’s plans. In July, we’re celebrating my dad’s retirement after over 50 years of helping people to see. My dad has always been a dear encouragement to me and I’m so proud of him. Also in July, a 2022 goal will be realized thanks to our wonderful team. I’m taking three weeks away from my desk for a sabbatical. As you know, I’ve been praying about this for several years. I am grateful to get to have this time to be revived anew. Here’s what’s on my Tending List for July—all action steps from my 2022 Goals.
I love this month: the fireflies, picking blueberries, and tomatoes beginning to ripen! What goals are you tending to in July? I’d love to hear!
