“We’re taking a break this summer,” I heard someone say – meaning, I’m sure, taking a break from coming to church.
Oh, dear, I thought at first. And yet what’s wrong with that? We all need a break from routine now and then.
So let’s all take a break this summer . . .
- A break from missing the tiny miracles all around us: clover blossoms, cloud shapes, new growth on that plant you’re nourishing ..
- A break from doing one thing while thinking about something else, especially if it means listening without really hearing what someone dear to us is saying ..
- A break from thinking we’ll have another day to reconnect with those we used to share with, with whom we’ve lost contact …
- A break from putting off that one task or phone call that will make someone’s day
I wonder how our spirits will blossom if we just take a quick break?
Peace and Blessings,
