Thankful Thursday

Today Lynn has chosen "Summer Fun" for todays theme.

Thinking back on summers when I was young, we would be outdoors almost all day everyday. Summers meant family vacations. One particular summer we packed up a huge station wagon and a huge Air Stream RV. We drove out west, through the mountains, to the ocean. We went to California and Wyoming, Washington, Montana, North and South Dakota. My sweet Grandma came with us. That made eight people on vacation!!
It was a fun fun trip.

I wonder how I will feel next summer, after the little guy has been in school all year?? Will he be bored? Will we find enough for him to keep busy??

I am thankful for the veggies my garden produces in the summer. Especially the tomatoes. My favorite. I am looking forward to BLT's and Bruchetta. And I will freeze tomatoes again this year.

When my daughter was young, she went to camp for a week each summer. I looked forward to that week. I missed her but it was fun for me not to have another person to be responsible for!

This week I am thankful for:
*my beginning to ripen tomatoes--we should have a huge bounty this year!
*my husband working DAYS next week
*my daughter coming to visit several times
*the grace of God


Proverbs 12:11
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Matthew 7:1
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

I've also wondered how next summer will be.
