I’m a summer girl:) And I love that our summer kicked off in such a sweet way with family gathering around a bonfire at our special little spot we’ve named “Just South of Heaven”! We worshipped together, and then shared testimonies about what God has done in our lives…and of course we had s’mores!
We have just been amazed and drawn to constant thankfulness over the humble, Jesus-loving people that we have been blessed to do life with. We have been loved, mentored, shepherded, and taken in by, who I believe to be, the most wonderful and selfless people in the world. Words can’t even begin to describe the change people have made in our lives. Real people that we can be honest with and that we know will be honest with us. Real people who love us no matter what and consistently prove it. Real people who don’t have to put on a face or dress up their behavior around each other, because they have found their identity in Jesus and bear the fruit of His Spirit.
I’m so thankful for the gift of being able to grow in this environment of believers. They make me want to love deeper and seek more and more of God. What a pure gift to be able to sharpen each other day after day, week after week, and forever! I’m overwhelmed by the sweet reality of it and praise God for loving us sooooo!
Never underestimate the power of connecting and growing with those around you. It is life-giving and life-changing! And I love that as we connect and love each other, He sends us out together to pour the same love out in the world! Thank you Jesus!
Have a blessed week!
