I have stretched out summer as long as I could...it started the 12 of June with a week off....and continued to this weekend, pretty much. I did work a little bit in all of that, but I just soaked in the last few days by being completely and totally relaxed and lazy and pretty much unproductive...in spite of knowing I might pay for that this week.
So. Summer is over. I felt a little sad last night, knowing that. I am looking forward, yes, to having my congregation all back on Sundays, and for more items on my schedule that will matter in ministry and in my heart, and....
yet, those lazy days have been delicious.
and I am grateful for them.
(and, if summer wants to stick around a little more, I wouldn't complain!)
