 There is an occasion for everything,

and a time for every activity under heaven:
a time to give birth and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to uproot;
a time to kill and a time to heal;
a time to tear down and a time to build;
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance;
a time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
|a time to embrace and a time to avoid embracing;
a time to search and a time to count as lost;
a time to keep and a time to throw away;
a time to tear and a time to sew;
a time to be silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

As children, we spend all winter anxiously awaiting summer. A time when we can enjoy a more relaxed schedule, poolside days, visits from the ice cream truck, endless hours playing outside, and longer days. Summer seemed glorious.

Now as adults, we know that just because the calendar indicates it's summertime, the work doesn't stop. In fact, when we have school age kids on summer break, the work load may even grow. And the summer heat that doesn't seem to affect us as children, often seems unbearable as adults.

Summer is a gift from God, but it's a gift that goes quickly. If we aren't careful, we can come to the end and wonder where our summer went. So how can we bring back the child-like wonder of summer? How can we truly enjoy our summer?
