Ahhh, summer. I love everything about it. The heat, the longer days, and extra time spent with family and friends. Some of my happiest memories as a kid were spent in the heat of the Orient with my mom, dad, and brothers.
On one occasion, my brothers and I convinced mom to take us to Deep Water Bay—a beach on the opposite side of where we were living on Hong Kong Island—during the rainy season. The weather was terrible for driving, yet we persisted. On the way to the beach, our car just about veered off a mountain into a muddy abyss below. Needless to say, we did not go to the beach that day, and we learned an important lesson on taking Mom’s “no” for an answer!
Traveling has always been a highlight of our family’s summer. I particularly look forward to July when I get to visit Uppsala, Sweden, for the annual Europe Conference at Word of Life. Sweden is absolutely beautiful in the summer and I always enjoy connecting with my Swedish friends at an amazing conference.
Follow me on Facebook where I will post links to live coverage of the conference. I know you will be blessed.
