Thank you for these summer days. Here in Minnesota, it means we have more sunshine, more warmth (heat!), and longer days. What a gift.
Thank you for the hot summer days, which means I’m not shoveling snow.
Thank you for the thunder storms that remind me of your great power.
Thank you for the smell of cut green grass and the morning dew, that bring a sense of freshness and nostalgia.
Thank you for softball games and the sound of kids bike riding, that remind me that “fun” is intended to be part of my life.
Thank you for the farmers who work so hard these months to prepare healthy crops for our food.
Thank you for the morning doves that signal a new day, a day that is guaranteed to be filled with your Grace.
Thank you, God, for this week’s summer days.
