Quote About Dandelions

"You fight dandelions all weekend, and late Monday afternoon there they are, pert as all get out, in full and gorgeous bloom, pretty as can be, thriving as only dandelions can in the face of adversity."

-- Hal Borland

Summertime 2014

Freshman year of college is (finally!) out of the way and I've got a little time on my hands to sit down and write now.

This summer, I am so blessed to be living with a close relative helping take care of her house during the day. Ironically, the thing I missed most during the school year and living in a dorm was the normalcy of being in a running household. I missed cooking and cleaning and having people I love walking in and out all day. I missed calm and quiet devotionals as I eat my breakfast in the mornings, and hectic afternoons getting ready for someone else’s event.

Frankly, I’m excited to see what this strange summer will bring. I've got vague ideas, but what will actually happen is out of my control – for that I am so grateful. If it were up to me, lots of things would happen and they would be amazing. If I plan things out too much I will miss out on the everyday miracles, surprises, blessings and lessons that He has to offer. Simply living in the here and now allows you to bloom where you’re planted by the Master Gardener, not where you've scattered your time and energies. 
*Not a real Name of God, but I like it; work with me, folks.

Work hard, play hard, live fully.
