Summertime!


Although it's not officially summer until June 20-something, when school is out - it's summertime! I dread the over-100-degree heat, but the 80's that we've been having here in southwest Oklahoma has been really nice.

Summertime for our family brings VBS, which just ended yesterday, little league baseball for three of our children (much easier this year than last when all four were playing!), Bible camps, ball camps, and FFA camp. It also brings snowcones, swimmming, sleeping in a little later, and playing outside until dark.

I am looking forward to not making lunches. I get tired of making them sometimes during the year (sorry to complain a little!). I am looking forward to not having to watch the clock as much or to meet deadlines quite as often. I am looking forward to having my children at home with me more, instead of gone over seven hours each day. Our whole family is looking forward to attending our neices' wedding in early August, which will mean a short vacation to Tennessee.

Summertime is a fun time, a relaxing time for many people. Unfortunately, though, many people forget about God and Jesus in the summer. The fun, lazy days of summer are enjoyable, but let's all remember what's most important: Keeping God first and serving Him as Jesus did....living by Jesus' example. Jesus died for us. What would be so important that we would forget about Him - even for one day, much less an entire summer?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
