End of Summer

My daughter on her adult-sized trike bringing the berries home. As another languid summer comes to an end, I am grateful for yet another year with my family. It is all gift. We are owed nothing.

This is a lovely post Regina!
I just passed on a picture of Jesus during His passion to my brother -in -law, James, that read:

He came to pay a debt He did not owe.
For a debt we can not pay.

God Bless!

What a wonderful reminder. Sometimes I forget to enjoy the gift of a simple day and to appreciate it all. I don't want to forget to remember. Thanks.

This post has come back to my mind several times over the past few days. On a walk with my four year old today, I was reminded of it as I watched her push her dolly in her stroller, chatting away, and was in awe at the beauty of the moment. "We are owed nothing", yet we are given so, so much.
