I sat down to write this post yesterday afternoon. I planned to get up early and get it down this morning. I would write it this afternoon, I assured myself. Oh, before bedtime, I’ll write it.
One thing or another (my own procrastinating?) prevented me each time , but at last, I sit down and actually write a post. We’ll call my three-week break a summer rest, okay?
But now that it’s back to the books, officially September and officially school for my family, it’s time to say goodbye to summer. I feel like a different person now than I was three months ago. Summer has taught me a lot.
Summer has taught me to love music more (including two new instruments, guitar and ukulele, in addition to piano).
Summer has taught me to embrace my own style a little more.
Summer has taught me to give myself a little more grace–or maybe a lot more grace.
Summer has taught me to keep in touch with my long-distance friends.
Summer has taught me that prayer is important–even if I don’t know how to pray.
Summer has taught me about the importance of a community of like-minded believers.
Summer has taught me that sometimes you don’t meet your goals–and sometimes, that’s okay.
Summer has taught me about the value of having solid role models.
Summer has taught me a little more about God’s love.
Summer has taught me that growing up is hard–which is all the more reason to draw closer to Jesus now.
And, last but not least–summer has taught me that the days are long sometimes, but the months are so short.
What has summer taught you? (Of course I actually mean God teaching you during the summer 😉 ) It’s amazing sometimes to see how much change can actually occur in such a short passage of time!
Come back next Tuesday for another post! (I’m going to be posting regularly now… stay tuned for lessons learned from college!)
