In celebration of all you summer-lovers out there here are three diverse ways to soak up the season for all it’s worth. Enjoy! 

What I appreciate most about Ginger
Harrington’s recent post, 21 Ways to Refresh Your Spiritual Routine,
is how each suggestion is simple, making them both doable and
refreshing, especially during busy this season. Here are three of those
ways:

  • Declutter your mind and schedule
  • Make a new playlist of worship songs—and really worship when you listen
  • Take a prayer walk

To read the post in its entirety, please visit Ginger’s delightful (and insightful!) site, Ginger’s Corner…Where the Spiritual Meets the Practical. 

Who

wants to spend the day cleaning when summer fun awaits? Better yet, who
wants to spend the day cleaning? It’s one of those things that must be done, but doing so in a timely manner can add hours to our day. I’m wired for structure so I found Apartment Therapy’s How To Clean Your House in 20 Minutes A Day for 30 Days very helpful. Hope you do too!

I plan to try this idea, especially since Honey Mangoes are in season (and Piper loves them!) If you beat me to it, let me know what you think. Thanks Fresh 180°.

So,
what might spiritual routines, cleaning house, and super fast sorbet
have in common? At first glance, not much at all, but each has the
potential to offer their own type of refreshment and who couldn’t use
some of that this season?
