It is finally officially summer, though here in Florida the temperature and humidity readings have said “summer” since April! Did you spend time celebrating the fathers in your life this weekend? We started Sunday by worshipping Abba Father at RiverLife Church then we headed to Aaron and Summer’s house. They hosted their first family gathering! We had 3 generations of the Schultz, Foster and Fulwood families enjoying food and fellowship, it was a great afternoon.
