Summer’s New Thing

So long, Spring! The calendar declares your days are done.  They shall be locked behind us; memories–some faint, others bright.

Hello, Summer!  Tomorrow you shall be welcomed with all your predictions and surprises.  May you be filled with time for family and friends, home and hostessing.   I for one am welcoming your space of empty {or emptier} calendar squares and ticks of the clocks that are not rushed by the sounding of the alarm. May you successfully slow down the pace of love and laughter that we may savor every smile of both the face and heart.

Spring, you crashed through this transition-torn heart with change, with hard-to-accept realities, with loss.  But you are gone now.  So long.  Take away your memories of shattered dreams and those who disappointed.  Leave behind only your wisdom, lessons learned and recollections of love.

Summer, bring your warm and welcomed healing.  Bring soldiers home, safely. Conquer cancer, quickly. Restore strained relationships, mercifully.  Fill the void. Do a new thing.  With breezes of truth-remembrances, wave hope and joy to hearts surrendered to lazy loungers. Shine upon garden hearts and grow a harvest of love and joy and peace.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
~Isaiah 43:19
