"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. " -John Lubbock
We said goodbye to the days of rest this morning. At 6:30am, the alarm, which we haven't heard since May, brings with it the schedules, homework, volleyball evening practices, Saturday morning games, Awana Wednesday nights, shorter days, and eventual cooler nights.
Summer was a true reminder this year of how good God has been to our family in the way of friendships. So many of our days were filled with our friends. I am so incredibly grateful to Him for it.
