August,
noble,
eighth month,
venerable,
midsummer,
regal,
Harvest time,
distinguished,
vacation time,
stately,
hottest season,
imposing,
driest season,
grand,
Height of a long,
hot summer,
Majestic,
Worst of a long,
hot summer,
Birthday.

August hosted several key birthday in our family circle.

My Cars-entranced BB turned 4,
brokenhallelujah.org celebrated its first year,
and my birthday was yesterday.

The Middle Girl began my morning with a sweet hug and greeting, “This is our first birthday Here.”

“Yep,” I replied in a tone that I hoped captured reassurance as sweet as icing, “I get to go first.”

“Just like a flu shot,” she rejoined without an ounce of irony.

Just like a flu shot.

It was innocent levity that I was happy quote throughout the day as people from There called me Here to share a Love that transcends geography.

I am so grateful
for that kind of Love.
That kind of family
and precious friends.

Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.

Such agape love tats the lace of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

And we can Love this way only because He loved us first.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever, (Hebrews 13:8).

Oh, how He loves us.
Oh, how He loves.

The immutability
of our Lord’s character
promises Forever’s gift.

Love wins.
He’s alive,
and His life
is our Victory.

I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah!
