Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Summer Fun!!

Mmm! Fresh laundry! I love the sight of laundry on the line. There's something so satisfying about it.

The kids have been painting, gluing, playing play dough and flarp, ( It's like noise putty only home made with liquid starch and Elmer's glue. Amazing stuff!) eating, and just basically living outside lately. Hope to post more pictures like this soon.

Okay, so spring is over already, and summer is in full swing. Gotta grab it quick, because it doesn't last long up here in the north land. What we get is the best there is though, so I'm not complaining! We've been living out doors lately. The picnic table is getting a lot of use. The bugs are nearly gone now, and the days are pleasant. Some of them are even warm enough for shorts. Today actually reached the upper 70's!

We had a wonderful 4th of July at my sister Jamie and her husband Pete's house. The kids had the best time visiting each other, as did the adults. 5 out of 6 of us brothers and sisters and our spouses and children were together for the weekend. The 10 children (ages 1 through 11) played hard all weekend. We had great food and fellowship together. God has done some mighty things for and in us all, and it is such a joy to get together and celebrate our lives in Christ together. GOD IS VERY GOOD!!!!

Happy summer to all of you! Hopefully it won't take me so long to post again!
