.i'm thankful for {you}.

i have loved a lot of things about this summer.
one of my favorite things?
getting to be best friends with this girl again.


.{you} make it beautiful.

sitting here in starbucks by myself,
listening to some of my favorite music,
and thinking about the past few weeks.
my summer has been unbelievable.
some memories are a blur.
others replay in slow motion.
regardless, i'm trying to soak up every moment.
2nd session is now in full swing,
and i'm being challenged in very different ways
from the first half of my summer.
1st session's theme for me was {love}
this session it seems to be {trust}
we have three weeks left, 
and i know the summer is quickly coming to an end.
i'm learning to trust that the Lord
has my next 3 weeks under control.
that i will get enough time with my kids.
that they will learn what He wants them to this summer.
 that He would work and speak through me.
i'm letting go of control because i know it's not in my hands.
i want to live my life to the fullest.
giving my all for the time i have left out here.


.all you need is {love}.

love is all you need.
that's what i've been learning in the mountains of colorado.
loving my [crew] kids
loving our [staff]
and loving my [jesus]
love is what i'm praying for my kids.
that they would love each other
and that they would take the love of {jesus} home with them.
we studied the fruit of the spirit a couple weeks ago
and it was amazing to see how every fruit abides is love.
is it okay if i share something with you? 
okay. here we go.

joy is love's {strength}
peace is love's {security}
patience is love's {endurance}
kindness is love's {conduct}
goodness is love's {character}
gentleness is love's {humility}
faithfulness is love's {confidence}
self control is love's {victory}
that's pretty neat.
everything revolves around love.
and i {love} that.
i'm learning to abide in that fact.
and to abide in my heavenly {father}
speaking of things i love,
here are some of the wonderful people in my life this summer.

and now 1st session is coming to an end.
we're sending our kids back out into the world.
hoping and praying they will {remain} in their Father
and most of all remembering to
