Summer Blessings

There are lots of things going on here this summer.  One blessing in particular is a month long visit with our beautiful daughter.  She arrived arrived safely and we are enjoying being together again.

For this missionary kid, Japan is “home” and she is so glad to be here!

Routine

I am grateful for those of you who still read my ramblings.  I am not one of those bloggers who posts daily or even weekly lately for that matter, but many of you are still here.  Thank you!

I returned to Japan from my unexpected trip to the USA and hit the ground running.  Ten days after my return, my hubby and I went away to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.  I can hardly believe it has been 30 years!  I am thankful for the good man that the Lord gave me to go through life with.

And now, the Lord has allowed me to slow down for a few days and spend lingering time with Him and catch up on a few things.  I thrive with routine and am hoping for some of that soon, but it isn’t looking too likely with summer upon us.

One thing I am doing is making time for reading.  I am currently reading Adorned:  Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.  It is exactly what I need to be reading at this time in my life and I look forward to sharing it with you in the days ahead.  If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it!

until the next time…

 

Update

I’m so sorry that I have been absent from the blog.  I am back in the states now and time is flying.  My baby, Son #2, is getting married one month from today.  Where does the time go?  We have been caught up in a flurry of activity.  I plan to do some reposting of some of my favorite posts until I return to Japan in August.  I hope you enjoy!
