An Important Reminder for Your Monday…

August 1, 2016

Happy Monday (and August)! Alright, so does this mean the summer is over? My cousin told me this past weekend that she was already three days back to school and my first thought was, But that’s just WRONG! I mean, already?? (And then I hugged her and said, ‘Yay school! Go get ’em, girl!’ I tried, I really tried…) I’m also trying my hardest to stretch summer out just a bit longer (and still have a few things left on my summer bucket list to cross off) – it helps that it’s still in the high 90’s in Nashville 😉

Speaking of Nashville… we’re making our way back this morning so I’ll be back to my regular blogging schedule tomorrow, but I wanted to just pop in quickly to remind us all of something…

Zephaniah3.17 EG

The LORD your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.  -Zephaniah 3:17


Amazing that the Creator of all the universe would sing over ME. (And He sings over you right now too. Can you hear Him?)

You are loved. Don’t you forget it.

  • Kids go back way too early these days. Remember when we used to start the day after Labor Day?!

  • One of my favorite verses! So beautiful. And August is way too early to be back at school!

    • You know what’s wild- this is the first I remember hearing/reading that verse!

  • Oh Ember… how I needed that!!! My great-aunt, who’s basically my grandmother – raised my mom and her siblings – isn’t doing well – at all. Last night got rushed into her 4th surgery in two weeks. This reminded me that she may be suffering here but the Lord is rejoicing over her spirit every second. And, when its time, he will soar her right up to Heaven. And I have NO DOUBT that she will sit up there and sing over our family with him!!! Thank you….

    • Katy, I’m so sorry to hear about your great-aunt, she will be in my prayers tonight. So glad He could remind you of His truths this week!

  • I try to stretch every little last bit I can get out of summer too. Here in NY the season is just way too short.

  • Safe travels, Emily! Great Monday morning reminder 🙂

  • Jae

    My indication that summer is almost over? All the summer clearance sales + fall sneak-peeks! 😮

  • I still can’t wrap my head around the simple fact that it’s August 1st. Time is flying… And God is good 🙂

  • Whaaa? Who is back to school already?? I don’t consider summer over til it’s the end of August. But it is wild that we’re here already…! Hope you had a brilliant time and safe journeys home! Xo

    I’m not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet. The temps, okay maybe, but not ready to let my sweet boy go back to school just yet. We are going to soak up every last minute until August 22nd. And even after that we will still have a lot of summer left to live. I mean, it doesn’t start cooling off here until mid-October! Love that verse! Thank you for sharing sweet lady. Happy Monday!

    • aw, I bet Crystal! (I have so much catching up to do on your summer adventures, btw!) Hope you guys are having a great week!
