I’ve been dithering these last few days about how to greet June here at mere-et-filles. In past years I’ve riffed the TGIF format, crafted a summer bucket list, said a simple “hello”, and some years, said a lot more. Last June’s post is a time capsule moment for sure (I do love when former me writes something that current me looks back on and feels … good about).
We have no plans to travel and I’m good with that. I expect there will be some fantastic stay-cation options as things open up (and we get more comfortable being part of them). and still … this June feels special. this summer feels special. so maybe it’s a good time to try something new. grounded in my OLW (Choose) and Intentions,
Hello June. Hello Summer.
Hello figuring out where to reconnect. I volunteered to finish up the remaining year of our Women’s Ministry’s Secretary (she and her husband are moving to Florida this month) two-year term; and I also resumed leadership of our church’s Prayer Shawl Ministry.
Hello new daily devotion and journaling practice. My small group is starting Henri Nouwen’s The Inner Voice of Love. We always read slowly, but this is going to be a new record! our plan is to read one devotion each day and journal a response. and then on Friday mornings, we’ll share questions and insights.
Hello porch time.
Hello trying new recipes, and maybe a new cocktail or two.
Hello making new friends. I joined a Thursday evening league for summer tennis, and I don’t know most of the team!
Hello saying No when I mean it (Courage and Joy).
Yikes, that’s a lot of New! I’m glad it’s a season (and not just a month). Also glad that Porch Time is an easy choice!
What are you saying Hello to this month? this season?
