School is over.
At least the scheduled,
class – room school.
And as the summer stretches before us,
I find myself feeling a sense of beginning.
Not a release from tasks or a dropping of To Do.
Instead a breath.
A chance to slow down.
The opportunity to let myself
get a fresh perspective.
It’s almost like a birth.
So much unknown yet the moment is too important not to savor.
What plans and errands and tasks and work which awaits these months of break are yet unknown.
However I have been praying for the chance to reconnect and refresh with my family, friends, but mostly my Heavenly Father.
As much as I want to spend time with the Lord, it’s never enough.
So as I watch the rosebuds unfold in my garden,
as the schedule and lists unfold in my day,
I plan to cling to the understanding of new beginnings.
What new beginning does the summer hold for you?
