It seems as though our days are so packed with "stuff" to do that we seldom remember to take time and enjoy God's gift of the natural world that surrounds us on Long Island. Please join me in this prayer of thanks for the gift of Summer!
I hope everyone has a joyous and peaceful rest during this break.
Prayer for the Summer Solstice
Jesus, thank you for Summer.
Thank you for light and warmth.
Thank you for the sun.
Thank you for the gifts of nature
and for the annual cycles and seasons.
Today, give us that grace again,
to see you as the Creator,
the One who lifts us up to be with you
forever, even now. Amen.
