My favorite time of the year is fall but summer has it's advantages too. Summer picnics, days at the beach, the neighborhood ice cream truck, children in sprinklers, fresh vegetables, fishing, bbq, and strawberry lemonade just to name a few. Living in the south makes being outside during the day difficult at times due to the scorching heat. Sorry, I'm not a fan! But growing up in the south in the summer was the best! I remember running through the yard, chasing fireflies around the willow tree and sleeping late not having anything to do but just be...Maybe that's what I like about summer the most, the laziness of it...

I just read this wonderful Triology by Francine Rivers. I so want to have faith like Hadassah's. Forsaking my own will, no matter the cost for the will of God. Knowing that whatever horrible things may come into my life, God still has me in the palm of his hand. Put others before myself and forgiving the most horrible acts against me. Seeing others as God sees them and doing everything to see that even my enemies are prayed for and make it in to heaven. I have along way to go but reading these books has inspired me. I want to have less of me and more of him inside of me so that the possibility of even coming close to this level of intimacy with him is possible.

I want a new camera really bad and I am salivating over this one! It's pretty expensive but I think it will be a good investment overall. I could spend the price of the camera on Blake's senior pictures alone! Plus this is suppose to be my graduation present so I think I am going to go for it!
