I love summer. I love the less busy days without carpool or homework. I love afternoons by the pool. I even love the smell of sunscreen.
This is actually my son Finn’s first week of summer vacation. (He is now a 4th grader!) We have a fun family trip planned. But next week, we move on to summer camp and swim practice with hopes for movie days, karate classes, and piano lessons.
Even in the lazy days of summer – there’s never enough time or energy or money. There’s so much I want Finn to experience. But we can’t do it all. And the mommy guilt sets in.
In those moments, our worries seem overwhelming, however unrealistic they may actually be. They creep in – even during the lovely summer.
Matthew 6:34 says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
That’s easier said than done. But with God, it CAN be done. And I pray that you and I are able to pause from the business and the worry, and enjoy the summer.
