mantra for the Summer. just mine

For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel;

The Daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor at the time it is [ being prepared ]; yet a little while and the time of harvest shall come to her. Jeremiah 51:33

over the weekend was Jeremiah & Veronica Hamlet’s vow renewal ceremony off Aqua Vista in Rockford..a Bohemian flair  –something powerful , anointed. healing.

” i want a baby brother, no, a real baby brother.

i have heard this declaration over and over again at random times the last year, maybe 18 months now since the middle of preschool when Jude figured out that many of his friends have little brother’s or older brother’s..his cousins Caleb & Ethan and Jack & Ben ; brothers. My son, June darkness, full fun Summer daze-; stroking my hair looking straight in to Ma’s eyes yearning for a baby brother–right now Jude you are the baby. (as I write this have been secretly yearning for another baby, just 1 more..

to everything –; a season

This morning is the last day of school.; the 4 released at 12:00 noon.

To say it has been a ‘hard’ year..ha ! Found myself collecting ‘moments’ earlier this week (Heidi’s quiet time)..scrolling through the mass numbered pictures i snap of my children..’everything’ , from Claudia’s student council application paragraphs to a random of Isabelle pulling her coat over her chest on a dollar day no uniform morning..her outfit selection so very snazz ..my promptings to overly capture the kids feed from the panic, ” You will want to remember this..” A recent quote I learned, “People take pictures of things they are afraid of losing”..

This will be a great Summer.

Past Summers felt so ‘light and airy”..now, we as a family have ‘moved’ to see and reflect..” Where are we going, what are we doing, HOW can we get there..my aim *always is to teach a profound sense of purpose in my children. May their ‘passions’ DRIVE THEM. This season is not funny, it’s serious.

“To EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter ‘or’ purpose under heaven :” Ecclesiastes 3:1.
