summer days.. {original I know}

                          Wow, the summer is flying by~ I haven't posted near like I thought I would. :)

Today has been loud. really loud. super loud. Thats always what happens at our house when it is raining. We had a terrible storm last night. It was lightening like crazy, and the thunder made me jump out of my skin. :)

As I was going to bed last night I singing "I belong" (by Kathryn Scott). It has such simple words. Yet they are so meaningful. Thought I would share them~

Not angels, nor demons, no power on earth or heaven

Not distance, nor danger, no trouble now or ever
Nothing can take me from your great love
Forever this truth remains
I belong, I belong to you
I belong, I belong to you
Not hardship, nor hunger, no pain or depth of sorrow
Not weakness, nor failure, no broken dream or promise.
Nothing can take me from Your Great love
Forever this truth remains
I belong, I belong to you
I belong, I belong to You.

I love being able to know that I am His. And nothing can take me from His great love.

I was singing lots of songs in my head last night. I will admit, I hate bad storms. Esp. since we have so many trees around us, and the lightening+trees creeps me out. "What a friend we have in Jesus" is always one that I sing when I am worried. It too has such meaningful words.

I love seeing the sun set. It is so peaceful and beautiful.~

                                              We have loved the bluebberys this season!

I loved this flower, it had such vibrant colors~
This little miss had her very first birthday last Tuesday~ (I kow, I'm late) She has brought SO much joy to our family. I can't imagine my life without her. She took several steps today. It is precious watching her figuring out things in life~  I love her smile. I love her laugh. I love it when she scrunches up here nose when she is happy. I love her squinted up eyes when she smiles. I love her soft fluffy hair. I love You, Lily Katherine!
Okay, back to the blueberrys... they have been great this year. It is such tedious work picking them. Esp. when thorns are in the bushes.  But they taste so much better when you work for them!

We pick them at such a pretty place.
I love taking shadow pictures... can you tell? =P
Hope you have a wonderful week.... if you are reading this than you have survived Monday~ So have I. That makes me happy. ☺
