"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still." {Exodus 14:14}

When you have those days, those weeks, when it seems like you don't have the strength to make it through, the Lord is there. When we are at our lowest point, He is our Help still & our Shield. He never leaves or forsakes us. And when we're walking through the valley, we have nothing to fear. He is there, every step of the way. And that, y'all, is something to be eternally grateful for!

1. Creating sweets from a new recipe / 2. Birthday & goodbye group photos all at once / 3. Intentional home making tips from The Nester / 4. A weekend with the family / 5. Surprise morning notes from Hubby / 6. Packed lunches from a beautiful friend

Summer - one of my personal favorite times of year! Growing up in sun-drenched Florida,  my sister & I would borrow our neighbor Donna's paddle boat for watery adventures, ride our bikes with wild abandon, roller blade our little hearts out & cannon ball off the diving board with friends.

So much of my childhood was spent outdoors: climbing trees, slathering on sunscreen at the beach, walking our dogs down the street, stopping for scoops of ice cream at Rita's, dreaming under weeping willows (while trying not to get stung) & that is one of the things I still look forward to each year! I try to sneak in as much of creation before the humidity/heat becomes too unbearable (quiet times on the porch, lunch breaks at the park & evening walks around the lake). "

The earth is the Lord’s, & everything in it, the world,
& all who live in it; for He founded it on the seas
& established it on the waters.
{Psalm 24:1-2}

Can you believe we're already in June?? What a quick May that was. It might have had something to do with getting engaged at the beginning of last month. Hot dang! ;) Although they're a few days late, here are my goals for this month:

June Goals

>>  Read through the first half of Multiply by Francis Chan. Our church will be going through the study as a campus later this fall. #disciplemakingwhat
>> Aim for 7 hours of sleep each night. Right now, I'm between 5 1/2 - 6 & I can totally feel the difference when I stay up later. So. much. extra. coffee. needed.
>> Review our memory verses from last month & continue memorizing weekly with my SG ladies.
>> Blog weekly about photo shoots, brides-to-be & more LMP fun!
>> Continue adventures in P4M classes & wedding planning without adding crazy stress, or losing sight of what's most important :)

I want a marriage more beautiful than my wedding. 

Happy weekend!
