[Cannon Beach, OR]

"My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
but wholly trust in Jesus' name.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong, in the Savior's love
Through the storm
He is Lord, Lord of All"

- Cornerstone,  Hillsong

Thankful to God for His unchanging grace.
Wishing everyone a meaningful time with loved ones during this holiday weekend~

Heavy hearted at the loss in Oklahoma.
May the God of all comfort cover those who are grieving and in pain.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles,
so that we can comfort those in any trouble
with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
- 2 Cor. 1:3-4

Sidewalk Art

It was a warm evening and dinner was running late.
Sidewalk chalk it is.
Dinner ended up being even later than planned
after I saw the beautiful light outside and grabbed my camera.
Love their little hands grasping the huge pieces of chalk....
this is a detail I want to remember.

Pics from this past Monday, where Seattle hit the mid-80's aka CRAZY HOT.
Seattlelites don't waste sunny days - no, we cherish them and then desperately beg them not to leave. 

I was laughing at the bare ice cream shelves and empty ice fridges in the grocery stores this past weekend - I'm pretty sure 90% of the Seattle population ate a popsicle sometime this past week. 
I know I ate one. Or three.

In any case, we had a blast watching the girls play in their kiddie pool and get sprayed.
Our neighbors probably appreciated listening to the piercing screams (of joy) coming from our backyard. 
We kept spraying them, they would scream, and then we would tell them to "Stop screaming, the neighbors can hear you!"
And then we would spray them again. 
Fun times all around (except maybe for our neighbors).

Looking forward to our next crazy hot day and more fun in the sun~!

Welcoming the heat wave!
I think the whole city is in a good mood.
