a cold, refreshing glass of lemonade

“Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
 Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him, and he will act.
 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
    and your justice as the noonday.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
    over the man who carries out evil devices!”

Psalm 37:3-7

life these days has been busy and exhausting and overwhelming. i’ve hit my third trimester and all of a sudden i’m tired again. i’ve kept busy but i still feel like i’m swimming in to-do lists. some days i feel like a horrible mother: this toddler raising business is NO.JOKE.  and can we talk about how freaking hot it’s been?! but we’ve had some beautiful times in the last couple of weeks.

little moments of fresh, cold, delicious lemonade made with the lemons we’ve been given.

like our anniversary date where we got ice cream at Penny’s truck downtown:

life multiple days of those boots in a row… oh and watering our bikes seems like a good idea too: R_2016-08-24 17.03  like getting a hair cut! for me AND the little miss!

it was a little sad to say good bye to some of her beautiful baby hair…but there is SO-much-less-tangles and screaming! she was so brave and such a good girl sitting as still as she could. she had 3 inches cut off!

like going peach picking.

(with visions of peach salsa dancing in our heads): R_2016-08-25 16.07   2016-08-25 16.13.35 she was very skilled at pointing out THE EXACT peach we should pick… lol 2016-08-25 16.13.41   we picked 21 pounds in like 15 minutes. (you guys, we made 24 cans of peach salsa out of about ten pounds of peaches… we still have 10 pounds to use up! ah! or figure out how to freeze!)

like opening the psalms. sometimes a psalm is exactly like a glass of lemonade. psalm 37 has been on  repeat these days and weeks as well. i just keep going back to it and reading it over and over. do you know how the psalm starts?

it starts with “fret not yourself…” it actually says that a couple times.  then it goes on over and over with promises that if you trust in the Lord, delight in Him, be still, take refuge, wait for the Lord…

HE WILL ACT. He will do things. He will be steadfast. He will uphold our hands, He will provide… He is the salvation, the stronghold, the deliverer.

so many good promises. Such beautiful and refreshing lemonade. go ahead, you can go read the whole psalm for yourself a few times now. there’s nothing quite like a big glass of cold lemonade on a hot day, am i right?

maybe i should try peach lemonade…
