Then followed that beautiful season… Summer…
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
Summer has arrived. Let the celebration commence! The harshness of winter’s chill is forgotten and replaced by billowy curtains dancing in the fragrant sun-warmed breeze blowing through wide-open windows Chlorine-sunscreen tinted air reminds us ’tis the season of barbecuing, sunbathing, water sports, and puppy love. Children’s laughter tickles our eardrums. The succulent fragrance of freshly cut grass and the roar of the neighbor’s lawnmower rouses us early Saturday morning.
Leisure is the word of the season, where work is replaced with play. Blowing bubbles, bicycle rides, hopscotch, hammock-lounging, random games of frisbee, and sleeping under the stars are the norm. Academic lessons are traded for life lessons in the world’s classroom. Reading transitions from a requirement to pleasure. Life happens at a slower, more respectable pace. We allow ourselves to indulge and savor the moment. Summer is the magical land where dreams become reality, and we speak expressly in the language of Love and possibility.
I declare this to be the summer of “Yes”. “Yes,” to change, “Yes,” to dreams, “Yes,” to new experiences, “Yes,” to opportunity, “Yes,” to turning the page and writing a new chapter, “Yes,” to God’s/J’s purpose, and “Yes,” to God’s/J’s every blessing. I will respond versus react, believe instead of dismiss, step up rather than shrink back, trust versus doubt, and allow Love to dissolve the illusion of fear. I choose Grace, Peace, Love, and Fun. How about You?
Welcome, Summer. Bring on the Love!
