We are finally getting summer weather. I know this does not compare to the heat many of you are experiencing but it looks like at least a week with 60 degrees as the low instead of the high. I will be spending a lot of time on the deck (no indoor air conditioning). Yesterday I was having my coffee, doing a bit of reading, and I looked up to see this little creature nibbling on my geraniums. This is the third time in a week that I have seen this little one and the mama.
Well, this is supposed to be a One Word post. This is the first time I have wished for different word. There was one year when I didn’t pay much attention to my word but this year, this word, Dwell, I would just like to switch to something easier. Maybe eat, plenty of that happening. How about change or surprise?
Dwell – to delay, to linger, to abide, to remain, to inhabit, to reside
July was not a month with lingering or delaying or pausing in a way that reflects my word. It was busy with planning details for the Zoom memorial we had for dad. Every day there was something that needed to be done. But maybe, in those tasks and details, I can see that I was able to dwell with my memories of dad. I looked at photos, listened to his favorite hymns, read the scriptures he wanted for his service, heard stories from so many people about the impact dad had on their lives. So there we are, once again, these words show up in unexpected ways.
