Gathering the Moments: July


There were sunny walks and a rainy weekend camping trip. A birthday. An anniversary. Flowers galore. Gardening. Jam making. Baby cuddles and plenty of reading. Laughter and good food. Hydrangeas. Cherries. Pool time.

A month goes by so quickly, yet in looking back I can see how much life was lived in it. Thanks be to God.

  2. Looks like a really good month you had there! So clever to putt all the photos together - I have never figured out how to do that!

  3. Yes, you summed it up perfectly: "Thanks be to God."

    I clicked on your collage to get a closer view. How much Mr. F is growing! Such a handsome boy he is! And, of course, the little misses are darling!

    Loved these glimpses of one of your favorite months (because it is a summer month, yes?)! Thanks for "gathering" with me...

  10. What a great line ...'looking back I can see how much life was lived in it.'

    We do need records to remind us otherwise we forget. Photos, journals, memorials to a life lived beautifully and well.

    A lovely way to remember...

  17. Lorrie,

    I feel the same way about months - they fly by yet so much life is lived in that time!

  20. The months certainly do pass quickly and even quicker the older you get! When I look back I often find it amazing how much can be fitted into a week. Sounds like a very blessed life.

  25. And very much alive, isn’t that what it’s all about?
    Alive and being aware.

  27. Wouldn't it be neat to print an 8x10 like this of each month to go in an album or easier yet to make a blurb book for your year. Sounds easy but I know it still takes time. Your trip to sea looks sooooooo peaceful!

  28. Beautiful month! Great idea.... I need to do this! Your grandchildren are precious!
