Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9

Sometimes it is hard to keep going, to continue reaching and working to achieve, to keep on keeping on, yet we are promised a harvest if we do not give up.  As I posted here, my plans for the summer haven’t exactly gone as I had planned.  Things I had hoped to do haven’t gotten done, due to obligations that arose.  I haven’t even blogged as regularly as I had hoped and planned to, yet God is good.  My summer, while not going like I planned, is really just fine.  God continues to bless and remind me of His presence in my daily life.  So I continue counting…knowing that a harvest awaits me.

591. visit from precious nephew and his wife.
592. visit from another niece.
593. Andy’s attitude.
594. help from John and Andy.
595. safe travel for John.
596. guidance in decisions we have to make.
597. green grass.
598. sun and rain.
599. sitting on the deck.
600. peace – even when I don’t have the answer.
601. abundant grace.
602. time with Andy.

So, my summer hasn’t gone as planned…it is going according to His plan.  Adding another layer to the texture of my life, memories created from unplanned circumstances, time to talk and listen.

In some ways, this summer is kind of like this pineapple…prickly on the outside, but sweet, luscious fruit on the inside.  This summer is changing me in ways I never dreamed possible.

Lord, thank you for the unexpected, the ways that you are working that I never dreamed of, the things I never saw coming, but I know you have a hand in them.  Please continue to work in the situations that are in my heart.
