I really can’t believe it’s the end of the summer. It feels like summer was only a month long, because the year has raced by so quickly. The truth of that saying, ‘Redeem the time for the days are evil…’ is becoming more and more important to me as the months go by, and I’m thankful to say that this summer was a really productive, packed, and pretty amazing!
I collected a bevy of summer photos to share as we close out the season and move into fall. I truly saw how great is God’s faithfulness as He carried me, His weak child, even farther through the recovery journey than I had previously thought possible.
And so, on this stupendous Saturday, I want to share just a few of those summer memories, so I will never forget what a wonderful summer 2015 was!
Summer Memory #1 – We went to several weddings!
Summer Memory #2 – Our cat had the most adorable little balls of fluff called KITTENS!
Summer Memory #3 – Took crazy photos while serving food at a camp in the mountains!
Summer Memory # 4 – I watched the dish-pit girls do their job and enjoy making funny faces while they did. (The dish pit has a special place in my heart.)
Summer Memory #5 – My eyes popped a little bit when I saw this much cookie dough.
Summer Memory #6 – We got to enjoy 8 beautiful puppies for several months!
Summer Memory #7 – We backpacked Montana for 4 days. We even got up early enough to enjoy the AWESOME sunrise.
Summer Memory #8 – We were pretty excited at the end of our 9+ mile day of backpacking.
Summer Memory # 9 – We saw gigantic boulder fields. We even saw a boulder that we nicknamed ‘The Stone Table.’
Summer Memory #10 – And I concluded that driving up to Montana is one of the most beautiful American road trips you will ever experience.
Summer Memory #11 – I spent evenings watching the sunset and thinking of just how God has directed every step of my life, just as He directs the course of the sun from its rising to its setting every day.
Summer Memory #12 – I got to take pictures (secretly) while my sis wasn’t looking of our spontaneous afternoon road trip.
Summer Memory # 13 – We ‘child’ sat some of the cutest, kids. They thought our dogs were pretty crazy.
Summer Memory #14 – Pre-race jitters and triathlons. 😀
Summer Memory #15 – I got to spend time with this little girl and absorb her love for Jesus that is simple and contagious!
