It is that time of year when our thoughts are drawn to the upcoming days of rest and rejuvenation; the days where we have opportunities to slow down and spend more time with our loved ones enjoying the gift of Creation. I wish you all a glorious summer filled with many opportunities to walk together in God’s love with your family and friends!
God of the seasons, You paint the world in a glorious array of color in summer.
We wake up to a pink sunrise and a green world filled with blossoms of all kinds.
Gardens are flush with lovely flowers.
Trees are magnificent in their glory, their branches growing ever upwards toward the sun-filled sky.
Each summer you take our breath away with the beauty you bestow upon us.
May we appreciate and be energized by the spectacular color and majesty of your Creation.
May we, your children, recognize and celebrate the beauty of the earth that you created, And the time you give us to be renewed and refreshed and grow closer to you every year.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
