Still Enjoying the Joys of My Heart

Daily Truth: “God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart.”  Ecclesiastes 5:20b

So, my joys made their “Summer-To-Do” list and I thought I would share it with you.

Sophia wanted to add Disney World, but that wasn’t going to be possible…obviously.

As you can see, there are a mix of things they have planned.  Some of the wishes have to do with trips already planned for the summer.  Others are just…well…wishes and we will get to as many as we can.

We have a busy summer ahead of us.  As my Sam said after we made the list, “That’s it for today”.

Until Next Monday.
