Holding On To Summer

Summer has faded away. The heat is still here and the pool is still open, but for me school starts next week. I intentionally kept this week unscheduled. B is away at camp and T-Bone is very busy with work, so it's pretty much just me hanging out with The Bird. We made our last Monday afternoon to the library yesterday and today we have a tea party planned with real cookies and lemonade. I am not happy about returning to my current position, but at the same time feel God has kept me there for a reason. God knows how I'm always trying to see beyond what is right in front of me and how I wrestle with the future. It's a season of growth for me to trust him, to keep on keeping on, and to know great things are unfolding and that maybe I just don't see it yet. Instead of feeling anxious and sad, I'm going to enjoy every second of one of my last "stay at home" mommy days. I'm going to rejoice and be glad in this day the Lord made and gave to me. I'm going to trust in his master plan for me. I'm linking this post to Tuesdays Unwrapped over at Chatting at the Sky. What are you holding on to today?

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future."

Isn't it so very hard though...to just cling to the moment instead of wondering what the future holds? It's a daily struggle for me to trust in that God really does know best for me and that no amount of me worrying is going to change the path He's ultimately leading me to! What a sweet little girl!

These were beautiful words.
And a child is never "just" , when such love flows back and forth and who knows where else in the days to come.
Thanks for sharing

Summer is slipping by way too fast. My older girls will be back in school by the middle of August. My youngest starts preschool this year. It is exciting and scary and sad all at the same time.

I relate so much to this post! Just in so many little ways. I have to remember to choose contentment as Paul did,knowing that all things work, well, together for good. :)
