The Two Things...

There are two things that make my summer so delightful. Well, there is actually a list about three feet long of the things I love about the Spring and Summer, but there are two things that I specifically love!


I dunno. All I know is they are so much fun! I think it's great for the bitty siblings too, to be able to play with them and nurture them. They are so sweet with them!! I really enjoy having them around, and it will be bittersweet as they go to new homes. It's just so wonderful to walk out to the shed and have all these sweet kitties greet you!

These kittens and the time my siblings and I have spent loving them (and all the time sitting or laying in the grass with each other, playing with the kittens, laughing and enjoying the sunshine, and each other) will be something I'll always hold very dear. It's a simple yet profound part of my life, and it means the world to me.

and another thing (of course!) is the garden. It has got to be the one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. Not only do I love working in it, but to me, just the sight of all those sweet green plants growing sends a thrill through me. I think the Lord delights in it as well. Don't you? When you take time to help cultivate and tend to His creation, I think He delights in that.
I just really enjoy it altogether, and cannot imagine my life without at least a little bit of tilled dirt! It just plumb makes me happy! :)

May God bless each one of you this summer, and remember to cherish the little things!!
