blizz3
okay. i can't not talk about this. in the last couple of weeks, during the holidays and blizzarding and beyond, grant and i have seen a constant stream of blessings come pouring into our life. some little, some big, but all wonderful, unexpected things. it's incredible. wherever we turn, we are finding God's grace falling in our lap. His omnipotent hand, providing over and above the needed help, via the mailbox, inbox, phone calls, family, and even the budget. i need to record this time, both to give Him praise and so that i can look back and remember His faithfulness, and maybe also to encourage anyone who might read this. one of my favorite people to quote, mr. charles spurgeon, says, 'what a serene and quiet life might you lead if you would leave providing to the God of providence!' in other words, stop worrying. hope on, hope ever. there is Someone who cares, who knows what you need even before you ask for it.
thank you, Lord, for scattering awesome things throughout our life. lately i feel like they are coming at us from all directions. i know we've done nothing to deserve them, but they are case in point of your goodness and grace. and i praise You.
ps. am especially grateful today for a good friend. happy birthday, sarah!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
