Thank you, June

It really has been a great month! We spent last week worshiping along with thousands of other Christians, and led by some amazing artists! The first day was literally dampened by  some major downpours but that stopped no one, most people stood through the storm to praise and honor our Father! The second day could not have been more perfect, we had a nice shady spot and it was much warmer. I was blessed with the opportunity to chat with Dave Pettigrew who is involved in a great ministry, and is such a beautiful soul with an amazing heart for God. I was also blessed to watch my 11-year-old grow in his faith, and both of our boys cannot wait to return again next year. We already have our tickets, wouldn’t miss it for the world! It truly was an amazing weekend of spiritual growth for all of us.

Another blessing from this month is our oldest choosing to return home to us, I am truly looking forward to rebuilding with him and seeing where God leads him. Most of my blog readers do not know about the turmoil we had been through with him and I will honestly keep it that way, but just be in prayer for this transition and his heart and future. We love him dearly and are so happy to have him home!

I also feel like we are on the cusp of my husband’s job transition, and we couldn’t be more excited because this will mean more family time! Lastly, we are officially done with 2nd and 5th grade and I could not be more proud of my sons who blew their achievement tests out of the water! They both scored way above their levels, this was certainly a confidence booster for those “I feel like I’m failing” mommy days as well as a confidence booster for my boys who do have their occasional struggles in some areas. It’s also a nice thank you for your opinion but we’re good to all the naysayers in our lives.

God is on the move in many mighty ways! ❤

Have a safe and blessed 4th of July weekend friends, we look forward to celebrating our soon to be 8 year old as well as spending time with our church family.

June is our month!

Everyone has something they are looking forward to in the summer, for us, this year it is the second annual Worship in the Adirondacks concert! We took our sons last year and it was a truly amazing time, thousands of people gathered out in God’s great creation, worshiping him and learning of ways to serve others. It was wonderful, our boys truly enjoyed their first concert and since then we have been sponsoring a young boy from Colombia. It has been a blessing to our family, knowing we are making a difference in someone else’s life! If you would like information on sponsoring a child, please feel free to contact me!

June is also the month we are working hard on getting our garden going, we have already planted many things and praying that it will thrive in this sketchy New York weather. Northern NY means that on this first weekend of June it’s actually a little chilly outside, we are set to have a high of 62 today! What is the weather like where you are? What are some things that you like to grow and that thrive well in your climate? I for one would love to grow some citrus but that is not happening here!

Have a blessed weekend, make it count!
