Together with God: Joys of Summer

| May/June 2010

Summer is full of wonderful events, from backyard barbecues to family vacations. One of the elements from summers past that I miss is the drive-in theater. My friends and I spent many summer evenings watching movies under the stars at the drive-in. We would sit on the hood of the car or on the tailgate of the pickup.

What I like best about summer, though, is the warmth it brings. After a long, cold, snowy winter, I can hardly wait for summer. The sun streaming heat into each day encourages me to work in the garden, clean up winter’s leftover debris, and to simply bask in the warm glow of summer, which, for me, makes everything more enjoyable.

It never ceases to amaze me how practical God’s plan really is. Just when we feel as though the cold will last forever and our bones will never stop aching, God gives us the summer sun and the warmth of life.

Father, thank You for the life-giving sun You have made for us. The warmth of that sun brings beautiful flowers and fields of wheat to sustain life, and it warms us after a cold winter. Thank You, Father, for the slow days of summer when we can play and enjoy life.
