I was thrilled last month doing our first giveaway. I so hope that you will try again for the Truth Wrap this month. I know it belongs to one of you, but if you don't enter you wont get it! I can't wait to see whose it is.
The sun shines through the window at times our eyes are normally closed. The school work has been set aside if little feet run through the house. The gardens are flourishing and some harvesting has already begun. While we are still tiptoeing into the season, Summer is here.
I always find it interesting how Summer brings the chaos out just a little. Routines seem to vanish, even for those who work. We try to fit in vacations, try to fit in downtime, try to make some moment during this season which makes us feel as if we are young again. The beach? An amusement park? The planning and packing drives us crazy. We are always glad once we are home back in our own beds. But the expectations leading up to the trip fill our heart, and prayerfully the memories last forever.
But what about those routines? Even in the midst of trip chaos you can have routines. Even as the sun rises earlier and sets later, what during those hours help keep your heart at peace? Do you set time aside for what does your heart good?
My days are longer for my puppy seems to follow the sun more than I do. There is more free time because the school work has been set aside until after Labor Day. And even oldest will no longer be employed soon. So what do we do? I could plan a huge vacation, but truth be told that is not in the finances this year. So instead I try to put in routines which will keep us enjoying each other's company along the way. I get up with the dog, write in the silence, continue chores on their days, have begun setting time in the afternoon for reading, and will plan a few day trips on a smaller scale.
I know summer isn't necessarily the time for afghans, but when the AC blows cold it may be nice to have something to drape over you. Moreover they will wrap around you like truth does, finding peace in a moment of chaos. What better way to celebrate the current season than with "Golden Sunrise." When you envelop yourself in this afghan I pray it reminds you how much you are loved. I hope it reminds you peace is within and without.
This afghan is 34"x40" and made of I love this yarn! yarn from Hobby Lobby.
