Summer Time

All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.

Hello, my friends — it has been a while since I wrote. How is your summer coming along? We have been oh so busy with the gardens (flower and vegetables), the property, animals, our new baby, our little homestead and visiting the sandy red beaches of Prince Edward Island to cool off in between chores. We have had wonderful company during the spring and summer, friends dropping by, relatives and all sorts of lovely visits in between …
God is so good – every time I turn another corner, I see blessings from Him, little gifts that encourage my soul.
This upcoming week we will be sharing time together with our best friends from the United States – with all that has happened over the past few years, having them come to visit us is definitely a gift that we do not take for granted. I am LOVING having a wee baby in my arms again and am trying to soak up as many snuggles as I can, in between weeding sessions in the garden and regular household chores.
I hope to post more soon – just know that life is short here on this earth – make it sweet! … choose to look for the blessings every day, read your Bible, follow God’s word and you will be encouraged and blessed.
