I feel more alive and excited and renewed in the middle of spring~ when I know summer is just around the corner~ than on the first day of the year, even with my resolutions/goals in hand. Something about warm days and long evenings makes me feel at home. And happy. My new beginning always feels more authentic around this time of year...when the sun shines a little warmer on my cheeks.
I love that God made us with heaven in our hearts~ we desire beauty, wholeness, excitement, adventure. Eternity is just programmed into us. That is why something like summer feels so darn heavenly to me:). It is a little glimpse for my heart into what God has in store for me in his coming kingdom. I know I am going to live on the beach. And run everyday on the sand. I even believe Jesus is gonna take a daily jog with me now and then. That is what I'm looking forward to in eternity, my jog with Jesus on the beach.
Today I took a short break and wrote down my hopes for this summer.
Small things that I am looking forward to and hoping for.
That is a good thing to do.
And reviewing them from time to time is even better...
So I can keep my hopes and dreams aligned with my Father.
Because I know he has good things planned for this family:).
Then I took a couple hours to draw my bikini girl.
She has on her boy-short bottoms.
And has thick legs...because she is real.
She eats burgers in her bikini. (which makes her awesome in my book)
And is okay with being flawed.
Because a hot summer day is way too beautiful to waste
on being picky about how she looks.
I'd like to share her with you (if you'd like:).
