week end and rosemary-ginger lemonade

Posted on

I thought I’d put up a  post for this cool refreshing lemonade  to celebrate the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. But as I was doing so I became a little depressed because we’ve gotten to that point in summer where every weekend brings us that much closer to summer’s end.

Uh oh. I seem to be doing that thing I used to do when I worked for a big corporation. The weekdays were hectic and stressful yet I always found it hard to be fully excited about Friday and the weekend because they always led right back to Monday.

 Summer started off strong for us,trips to the pool,the lake,carnivals,amusement parks. It seemed like every weekend we were doing something. I don’t know about everyone else but I’m kind of winding down. Having more days where I’m excited to just do nothing.

I don’t know what is causing me to feel this way but I do know I’ve got to shake this feeling and fast. I want these next few weeks to be a combination of days full of activities and days where I do nothing except relax with a good book or take a stroll around the neighborhood.

So far today is turning out to be one of those relaxing days. Later I might take a stroll or maybe I’ll just relax with my book and a glass of lemonade. Unless,of course, there’s a carnival in town.

Some things I know for sure: Every day is a gift-be surprised and thankful for each one. Every day we are given lessons that we should learn. We are here on earth to be kind to one another. All living things deserve respect. We should not ignore cultural differences but instead be curious enough to want to explore what makes us different in order to find a common thread. I know-that which does not kill you makes you stronger. I know that knowledge makes you blossom and ignorance hinders. I know you should do what you love. I know I love life on the best days and even more on the worst. I know a meal shared can bring neighbors and nations together. Mangia Come Pensi. Translation-Eat like you think. I am not full yet.

My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.
