That August can be
even in Arkansas.
We've lived on this farm for 22 years but this is the first year
I've seen green grass during "dog days."
I learned again that God does
work things out for good
for those who love Him.
I learned to not
and drive and that I'll refuse to ride with you
if you do!
... That "forgiven" on
I discovered what turning 49
(good!)- especially over cupcakes.
I learned to use new inks and stencils
in my art journal and
became more free in journaling.
I learned you just never know when/how those
Godstops will happen.
But to follow through
... following Him.
I learned a lesson in giving
and by her example how to really pour into
I discovered this fondness for
orange marmalade and that I could eat it
and pretty much do.
How to say goodbye to my beloved bunny
Brussel Sprouts. He got really sick...
and is no longer with us. :(
I learned that my Angel Mother's dog "Mollie" passed away
after 16 wonderful years.
I learned a few new words like:
aperture, shutter speeds, and manual mode-
as Myguy gave me a cool new camera for my birthday.
--and ...That said; I learned
there's much to learn!
I discovered my very first blue moon!
I rediscovered how much fun
a good olde demolition derby is!!
I discovered my most favorite, most comfortable cowboy boots EVER:
Ariat Aztec Cheyenne Boots.
My feet have never been so deliriously happy.
I discovered some new music I totally love:
Gungor and All Things New.
I learned we have a gray fox here... and just last night
saw him run out from under the crab apple tree.
I learned that along with God's love, mercy and grace- it can also take some time to
restore the broken pieces.
I learned just this morning that
raccoons can be destructive and from now on,
birdfeeders will have to be put away at night.
....Fare well dear August....
May we meet again.
