Today is the first day of summer vacation break from school. Whoo Hoo! My boys are sooooooooooo excited! Matthew and Aaron love living near the beach. They have purchased the suntan location, flip flops, swimming goggles, swim trunks, beach towels and have the beach bags packed. They are excited about the endless adventures of summer. The summer clothes have been pulled out and they have joined the summer reading for youth at the NYC Public Library. Matthew and Aaron have done this for years and can’t wait to get the prizes every two weeks after reading books they choose. The boys are eager to romp around the city. There are so many exciting, fun and free things to do right where we live. They are ready, eager and know that every day is going to be a GREAT day. Even kicking back and hanging out at home is going to be awesome. They really don’t doubt this for a second. As I was reflecting on Jeremiah 29:11 after writing it on a card for someone the Lord whispered in my ear…Do you wake up every morning like this? Excited, busting with anticipation for what I have for you each day? Do you see each and every moment as an ultimate adventure? I want you to. Because I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Remember that “I am with you, I will quiet you with my love, I will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 Now this is something to wake up excited about.
