Soaking up the Son – and loving life!

“For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12, NASB95)

For any who may be wondering – I have not abandoned this blog.  I intend to keep posting, but with summer vacation here and a wonderful peace in my soul that I am truthfully unaccustomed to – I have been more inspired to play with the kids (fishing, biking, swimming, etc.), play with my mobile garden (spicy salsa and chile rellenos in our future), and reading as opportunity provides (in the middle of 3 books now with a growing want to read list).  I can only say that it is very well with my soul.

Last weekend we came through a nasty storm that produced at least two tornado touchdowns on our way home from the farm.  We stopped to watch for funnel clouds (ranks right up there with chasing a black bear in my Game and Fish days) then drove on.  We came through what seemed like a wall of rain and then just as suddenly as the black storm clouds had met us, we were met with clear blue skies – beautiful!  Like the storm had not even occurred.

This is the only way I can describe the contrast between last summer and this summer.  Just as fast and unexpected as last years stormy trials appeared – a peace and rest from God has overtaken me.  God always more than compensates for faith during times when the sun seems blocked.  I intend to soak up every blessed ray of sunshine He is sending down upon me right now!

I pray God’s blessings on each of you who routinely checks this blog and that you too will soak up all God has for you today.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:16, NIV)
