Summer Lovin'

*Please do not pin my images from this post. Thanks.*

"And don't be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God's place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there." 1 Corinthians 7:17 MSG

There is nothing like diving straight into summer! Don't mind me while I stop sewing so much and soak up these wonderful  pleasures for awhile!
The cold pool water does not stop these water ducks!
After what felt like the longest SC winter ever, we are diving into our chilly pools and soaking up the sun again! Thank the LORD! It's amazing how much I missed being pool-side! And to think it's almost JUNE!
Of course, this means, pulling out our little pool when we don't make it to my in-laws, and filling it with whatever neighbor children want to join!
I slow down in the summer and enjoy sweet moments more.

"I do want to point out, friends, that time is of the essence. There is no time to waste, so don't complicate your lives unnecessarily. Keep it simple --in marriage, grief, joy, whatever. Even in ordinary things --your daily routines of shopping and so on. Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. This world as you see it is on its way out." 1 Corinthians 7:29 -31 MSG 

There is nothing like switching versions of the Bible every once in a while to wake you up to new thoughts about this life we are living under the sun. I feel like these two verses quoted in this post are going to be my motto this summer! I want to be free to soak up these children and their adorable-ness and love them sweetly. Less computer and more true, real beauty in life. I hope your summer is amazing!
