Week One on my Whimsical Summer Adventure

So my first week I got to hang out with P. Ted. This is how it went ...

On Monday, we worked on his motorcycle, but no such luck fixing the fuel leak. I don't think P. Ted took any of my advice.

On Tuesday, we discussed the author Walter Bruegemann and the book P. Ted is reading about words of faith.

On Wednesday, we went to visit some special people, and played a few cribbage games. Again, I don't think P. Ted took my advice because he lost both games.

On Friday, we got to pay some visits to some more special people at the hospital. I like seeing the smiles. After visiting ... I was in for a special treat as we went to the Edmonton Jazz Festival!

On Saturday, P. Ted finally let me play his guitar. Yay! P. Ted needed to use the pressure washer to clean the deck, but he wouldn't let me use it. I really wasn't going to spray him. :)

On Sunday, I was back at Asker ready to join another family ...

Follow Mahershalalhashbaz on his Whimsical Summer Adventure!

Hi I am Mahershalalhashbaz Frog, you can call me Frog. I am joining all my Asker friends this summer to see what the family does day to day. Follow my adventures as I travel with them through their daily walks.

P.S. see if you can discover the story behind my name ...

To Dwell in Summer

I am excited how the end of June brings about a change of seasons. It brings longer and warmer days with a more relaxed schedule. I find "new" routines in this slower paced season. With this change of seasons and routines comes a different way to dwell in His word.

My favorite place to commune with God is sitting on my deck with my bible and journal, early in the morning surrounded by his creation.  I find it an uncomplicated and peaceful way hear Him. How do you commune with God?

Pausing to Pray this Week

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe."
 ~~~ Ephesians 1:17-19 ~~~
