My summer list

I’ve seen a lot of “Summer lists” floating around on the internet. They are so fun and encourage our families to do all sorts of new things from chasing fireflies, going to the zoo and playing with sparklers. Some of you will go on long walks and others will head to the beach. Some of you will move more slowly as you relish the long hot days and our children’s simple joys. There are loads of fun things to do all summer long, but a thought occurred to me, what does God want from me this summer? Would you believe, His Word speaks to this too!

While we all have a little more time on our hands without school-work and reports to be completed, we might be able to focus a little more on some important truths from scripture. I invite you to print them off and ask yourself if these are true practices in your life. If not, there’s no time like the wonder of the summer to begin a new! And while doing so, don’t forget to chase a few fireflies and eat a few hotdogs as you grill-out with the important people in your life. Let’s make it a great summer!
