August Blessings | 2022

Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:25-26

Good morning, friends. I hope you have a lovely day ahead of you. I wanted to share a few things I am grateful for with you today. August has been good to us!

The Lord is wonderful, and I am so grateful to have Him in my life. He truly makes everything better and brighter somehow. I would like to encourage you to earnestly seek Him. He is the giver of all good things!

The best thing that He has given me is my family. I love being a wife and mama. I have been spending more time with my children now that our homeschool year has started back. I really enjoy this one-on-one time with them. I had almost forgotten how wonderful it is to watch my children learn a new concept or read me a story. This has definitely been a blessing!

My garden has slowed down, and I have enjoyed starting a small fall area. I hope everything grows well, but I don’t feel the same pressure that I did with my summer crops. I don’t know if that makes sense at all. I’ve allowed myself to breathe and really enjoy my garden this month. It has been wonderful. It also has been nice to watch my sunflowers bloom and cut down corn stalks to dry. This year, I should have enough stalks of our own to decorate our yard for fall. This is so exciting to me.

My husband and sons have been hard at work on adding wood to our walls. Since our floors are now (basically) level, and our roof and gutters have been replaced, we can move on to adding the wood I had been hoping for to our home. It has been such a blessing to me. I don’t know if this makes sense, but it feels so good to see a big change like this happen. I had no idea that renovations would take so long when we first moved in here, and I love seeing my vision come to life.

It is shaping up to be a good month. But even if it wasn’t so good, I know that the Lord would be enough. He always is. He is what our souls long for, and only He can truly bring us joy and peace. I’m so thankful for each and every blessing that He has given me.

It is nice to count our blessings each year, month, and day. I want to remember to thank Him for what He has given me. Always. I truly don’t deserve all He has given me.

I hope you have had a lovely month so far, friends. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. May the Lord bless you richly!
