What Does Summer Mean to You?

As administrator for Cornerstone Community School school, I spend the school months being driven by the demands of a schedule and the needs of the hearts of the families involved with our school. I praise the Lord for such a gift of ministry and am awestruck that He would consider me for the job, but by June I am drained from the pouring out of myself to my husband, my children and to the school. As I consider my days of summer, I feel like a child as my impatience and enthusiasm for those freer days begins to build. Only, unlike my childhood, my refreshing and excitement comes, not necessarily from a swim in the ocean, but from my rebuilding in God’s Word. The gift of being able to sit by the seashore with my Bible, devotionals and yes, my inspirational Christian fiction :0), is exactly what the Lord uses to give me that “be still” rest and that cool drink from the water of Life. Only because of these slower, more Christ-filled days, am I ready to push up my sleeves and dig into another year of ministry building little people into Christian leaders for the future. All for the glory of our King!

What about you? What does summer mean to you?
