The Lord has done great things for us we are filled with joy and laughter. Psalm 126:3
Life is amazing right now! I’m sitting on my newly decorated front porch enjoying a cool evening breeze. It’s that GLORIOUS first Sunday night of summer vacation. For those of you who aren’t teachers, its hard to describe the carefree feeling of knowing the weekend has come to a close yet you have no papers to grade, lessons to plan or classroom details to organize. I LOVE my job but the feeling of that first Sunday night of vacation makes me giddy!
I’m enjoying planters full of blooming color, hummingbirds fluttering around the feeder and the sound of bugs and frogs and birds as the sun sinks low in the sky. It is a perfect summer evening and I’m sitting on my glider with my computer in my lap just soaking it all in. This scripture just seems to sum it all up! He’s done lots of great things for me and I’m filled to the top!
My heart just wants to scream out; thank you Lord for a job I love and a chance to rest. I’m filled with joy that you gave me this family, this town, this home, this sunset, this front porch. I don’t have any big words tonight…just thank you. Mostly, I’m filled with joy and laughter at the opportunity tonight to just be still and soak it all in.
A Seed To Plant: What are the great things God has done for you? Now, sit still and enjoy them for a bit!
Blessings on your day!

I'm so happy for you and other teachers who are starting your beautiful vacation! I'm a teacher with 4.5 days still ahead of me this week and Mother Nature is throwing a heat wave at us! Please pray for us! 😥
