A Summer Blessing

A SUMMER BLESSING. Though the "official" start of summer is three weeks away, Memorial Day weekend is for most folks the unofficial kick-off. So, here's my homemade blessing for your summer...

May summer warm your soul.
May you, like all plant life, flourish and
grow in this season of sun.
May you absorb life in these months.
May you find
work fulfilling,
play renewing,
relationships reconciling,
faith deepening.
May you return in your heart
to the beach,
to the campground,
to the drive-in,
to the garden
to the friendships
to the sports field,
to the forests,
and far-off places
that fueled imagination
and freedom to explore.
May you once again be changed
in a season of life called
summer.
