Summer Days

Today was a beautiful day!  Blue skies, lower temps and humidity... had Tom throwing the windows wide open and letting the breezes sweeten up the house.
Oh, how thankful I am for these long summer days.  They seem to pass so quickly now.  As a child, they seemed slower...times different, people kinder, gentler, even neighborly. Not so anymore...sigh.   What has happened to us?  Have we lost sight of what God intended for bear one another's burdens, to love unconditionally and take responsibility for offenses, rather than blame the other person?
Seems this perfect Summer evening has gotten this ol' gal a bit melancholy.  I realize that longing for the past gets me nowhere, that I have to look ahead, expecting that The God of all... will as always, be there for me. And if I strive to seek Him...I will stay on the right path and be a kinder, gentler Jesus.  God is the same...yesterday, today and forever.  In Him nothing changes!  Oh, how He loves us!
I am blessed.
