Summertime is for Friends — 8 Comments

  1. What a great reminder that it isn’t necessarily the place but the people that provide us with the memories, and the present, of God’s love and presence for us.

    • Hi Marie,
      What a blessing to see you here. I hope your summer is providing refreshing moments and God’s peace. It’s true that friends make all the difference. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like as long as we are sharing time with friends. Remember when you came out here and we had a monsoon? We had to rush teens inside before the storm hit. Then we both could enjoy God’s creative display!

  2. Those kinds of happy memories are such a gift!

    One day I came across a cassette tape (remember those?). It was of us and another couple practicing the song, “Daddy Sang Bass, Mama Sang Tenor”. They were our neighbors and friends when we were all young military families in California, and our kids were toddlers or preschoolers. Listening to the tape, the ladies were more of the instigators for the song session, and the guys were more or less talked into it without as much enthusiasm as the wives would have liked. It made for a lot of laughter and fun. Our kids are all grown now, and there are grandkids. It is such a gift of the Lord to have given us brains capable of storing so many years of memories, and the good feelings that tag along with them.

    • Wow, Carol,
      I do remember cassette tapes. I think we have a couple of tapes with “Little Tim” speaking on them. Now, I’ll have to go on a hunt!
      God has truly blessed us with minds that store such blessed memories. I pray that more people will find treasured memories and relief for the painful ones.

    • Hi Sandra,

  3. Praise God for friends who we can spend time with and remember all the fun we have had together!! Although summer is not my favorite time of the year, it’s nice to have friends to experience it with their presence and make memories!!

    • Hi Cecelia, summer can be brutal, especially in Arizona with the intense heat. But with the heat come heavenly monsoons and gorgeous sunsets. Having friends to spend time with in the summer give us a change of pace to look forward to and memories to build. And, fortunately, we can find some cooler spots in this state.
      From My Heart to Yours,
