Summer’s Story


A lot of people I know only think of the summer time as hot and muggy; I think they might be missing something…

I’ve always thought of summer as a glorious time, but I must admit that early on that was just because I didn’t have to go to school.

I took a drive the other day, and summer’s story was all around.  You could see it in the backyard BBQ’s where friends and family were gathered together.  You could see it in the small town festivals where communities are gathered.  You can see it in the church VBS  announcements where little kids will hear all about Jesus, and their parents and other adults will experience godly service for others.

You can see summer’s stories driving through farm country and seeing growing green fields as far as the horizon in every direction.  No, don’t say that is a boring sight!  This is where men and God work together to feed the nations and I daresay we’d all notice if it wasn’t going on.  Summer is a time when many have a chance to relax and recharge, to vacation with family and to just slow down a bit.  You can sit outside in the evening and hear the symphony of the land, the late calls of birds and the rustle of leaves in the trees, and you can enjoy the sight of the tiger lilies bright orange all around.

Yes, I’d say summer has a lot to tell if anybody cares to notice.. for the glory of God is everywhere to be seen.

    “Be still and know that I am God.”
    Anyone who sits in silence and takes in all the declarations of nature & the heavens must conclude there is a God. Anything else is deceiving one’s self.

    Unless you have idiot neighbors. Race their three wheeler in their backyard and/or cook their wood burning meal outside about 9 p.m. which is my bedtime usually with my 4 a.m. shift. Even with the windows closed it stinks up the neighborhood. Bunch of hillbillies..

    I love summers, especially summer nights. I love the energy that come with summer. I have lived in a city all my life and summers in the city are awesome, despite the occasional negative energy that heat can set off; I enjoy city summers since this time of the year open events in the park, museum functions, and many other free and community base activities.
