Summer Revisited

September, autumn, cooler temps, falling leaves, pumpkin spice latte…my favourite season of the year.

Before getting too far into a new season, however, I wish to thank the Lord for a blessed summer mixed filled with love, care, fun,  joy and tears, babies and much more. Since a picture paints a thousand words, these should say it all::

Thank you, Lord, for Your protection, care, blessings, and answered prayers woven throughout this summer season.  We long to trust You in all our seasons to come, the prayers You know we’ll pray, the needs You know we’ll have.  Your love knows no bounds.  From everlasting to everlasting, we can trust in You.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

  1. Everyone,

    Thank you for your comments and compliments! The Lord has dealt with us so mercifully over the years, and the joy these photos express is no exception.

    He has satisfied us in the morning with HIs unfailing love, so that we may sing for joy and be glad in Him all of our days (paraphrase on Psalm 90:14)

    Give thanks to the Lord! In Him, Linda

  2. Dear Linda,
    I really enjoyed these pictures of your family and garden and vacations. I could look at them again and again (and I will!) Congratulations on being a new grandma, and soon another one coming.

    I love the pictures of the birds, and the sidewalk cafes. If you ever come to the Philippines, we could really have a wonderful time at the cafes we have here in our country. Coffee shops are among my favorite places anywhere.

    And your new grandson having a bath is such a heartwarming picture.

    I praise God with you for the memories of your summer just ended, even as the Fall season is here. Like you, Fall is also my favorite season of all. (We do have many things in common!)

    Thank you for your kind comments at my last post.

    If you have a bit of time, may I invite you to re-read the last part of that Sept 30 post. I have re written it and shared more of what I am personally going through. It’s not really been easy for me.

    I will surely appreciate your prayers at this time.

    Love
    Lidj
