155th Post - BIG Huge Sigh...

Summer Holidaying is Over. 

This one was faster than ever.
<insert great big sigh coupled with arm stretch>

In point form here's a catch up of 
some of our summer activities:

  • Replaced septic system with a brand new state of the art Waste Treatment System
  • Re did (actually my reverend is still doing this) patio deck which was ripped out to get to the old septic tank. 
  • Learned more than I ever thought I'd learn about Waste Treatment
  • Learned we have very good dirt
  • Planted grass from seed and it's growing!
  • Celebrated the engagement of my youngest step son and his fiancĂ© Jennifer
  • Had our first ever gathering with all our grandchildren - all nine of them
  • Starting planning for the birth of grandbaby number ten who should be born sometime in December 
  • Spent a glorious four days in Parksville with my daughter, daughter-in-law, ex-daughter-in-law, granddaughter Cambria and Baby Luka
  • Walked miles on the sandy shores
  • Learned about Sand Dollars 
  • Reminded about Tides
  • Read, read, and read some more
All in all it was a wonderful vacation. One of my best yet. 
Now, it's back to work.

Contemplating the goodness of God.
 His direction, His blessing on my life.
I purpose to Lean In to his Grace,
Rest in His Peace.

"And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith." 
Hebrews 12:1-2

Thanks to Gwen Smith for a fresh inspiration!

It's been a while, but if you're still with me, welcome.
Until next time,
