My heart gave that little flutter as I sat down and opened up the decorated pages of my planner. It was the last week. The last week of summer was upon us. I sipped my coffee and smiled, allowing a few minutes of pure day-dreaming delight as I imagined the months ahead. I thought of ice cream and snuggles with the girls of them squealing as they played in the sprinklers and of the time we would spend exploring their interests.
I smiled as my optimistic heart decided that it would be the best summer ever. Micaela is incredible mobile and confident outside, Adela has a thousand interests and things that excite her heart, and I am ready for the change.
I almost...almost...didn't need my cup of coffee.
Hope and positive expectations are powerful.
I tried a new Bible Study program recently called "She Reads Truth" and the study I did was about the Kindom of God. The study awed me. As I poured over God's Kingdom, His promises, and His plans for us, I was filled with hope and expectation that fueled every day with the determination to show up as a loving and compassionate child of God. There is nothing like looking at God's big picture and being reminded that He is in total control and that great things are in store.
I have so much trust in God's plans for my family and that faith helps me look to the summer with even more joy. Yes, there will be sun burns and sweaty mosquito bites and weeds to pull, but, the sun will shine and everything will grow. My garden, my flowers, my girls, and my heart.
I'm so ready.
What are you looking forward to that is fueling your life today?
