Welcome to Monday! I don’t know about you but my head is spinning just knowing that we are one week into August! Rev your engines, because there is a lot more we want to squeeze into and out of Summer before the blissful (to me) days of Fall and Winter (my favorite!).
So recapping the week, I was blessed to have time with sweet friends and Sisters in Christ who bring great joy wherever they shine. I guess you could say I was basking in the Sonshine! God truly has blessed me in this area, and I am so grateful for these precious ones.
My friend Sandie (Chatty Crone) sent me this awhile back and I thought I would share it with my sweet sisters as a reminder that when we belong to Jesus we shine Sonshine into the lives of those around us. That’s what this picture reminds me!
I had a time with my dear friend, sun (Son) chaser & coffee partner Mary.
That was blissful, and just so relaxing.

Earlier in the week I had some time with my sweet friend, Mel and her boys. I enjoyed chasing down cute little Hermit Crabs with them. We also met up with a couple more sweet sisters in Christ and I will tell you this the day may have been cloudy at the beach but we brought the SONSHINE with us, friends! I made a new sweet friend, named Owen and we went Rock hunting together. I was a little nervous when his mom was intorduced and looked at me stating, “Oh I remember YOU, I took one of your classes”. YIKES! When someone says, I took one of your classes as opposed to I used to take your class, you know that you are in trouble! Anyway, turns out that it was a class that was just a little more than she wanted at the time. Phew. She forgave me anyway, and we had a nice time chatting the day away.
If you missed my Facebook shout out I am shouting out again because I have to tell you that I loved this 40 day journey with Bonhoeffer so much I am doing it again! I know the first time I missed the beginning so I wanted to get every single one and I suggest you do the same- you will not regret it!

Hubby and I attended a beautiful family wedding.Don’t you just love a wedding? Course this caused us to reminisce about our own.
The ceremony was beautiful. But we missed the ring exchange, kiss and announcement of the new couple due to photographers who moved into the center aisle completely blocking our view.. Please photo and video people, don’t do that.
The flowers at the reception were breathtaking!
Ashley empathizes with Mom over the laundry duties. Thanks sweetie.
