{Let June Begin}

  It's Sunday afternoon and my tribe has left after a wonderful and breezy afternoon. The youngest two grands made friends with a baby bird today and was so sad when they had to let it go.  We attended a dance recital for these two littles. They both done so good. It was so bright outside and we were all squinting in pictures. The girls had a fan club for sure. Marty and I are blessed that our family always supports one another. Just BLESSED y'all. Just blessed! Marty enjoys coffee cakes and breads with his morning coffee on his way to work so I baked a yummy cranberry & orange coffee cake with drizzled icing. It smelled amazing baking. I think I might have a slice in the morning. LOL! The month of May was National Physical Fitness & Sports month so we ladies finished up strong.

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24    I am reading this as part of my devotional and couldn't help but chuckle! We have reaped a harvest of flooding from the storm Debbie. Seems she has left but flooding is still happening in some area's. I have prayed for rain for so long as our county and especially for our homestead because it has been so dry. I got my prayers answered with a little kick to it! I am not complaining but just couldn't help but laugh at the Lord's sense of humor this morning. I walked outside on my porch to see the road in front of my home under water.
