Thankful for Summer
Posted By Shaina Moats On May 14, 2011 @ 1:18 am In Employees and Culture | 3 Comments
Although it is May here in Colorado, the weather is still reminiscent of winter. As I write this, it is about 40 degrees, sleeting and overcast.
For a Texas girl, this is quite unusual. I can’t help but long for summer. Those three blissful months of heat and sunshine are all I can think about lately. I can’t wait for long drives with the windows down, cookouts with friends at a local park, and nice refreshing afternoons spent in a pool. But I have to stop and think:
Long drives = car
Cookouts = food
Pool = clean water (enough for me to swim in!)
As I look forward to my favorite summer activities, I am reminded that my life is so different from the majority of the world’s. I don’t feel guilty  (at least I try not to), but I do take a moment to stop and think about:
As summer approaches and you anticipate all the fun things you have planned, take a moment to be thankful.
They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. — Psalm 145:7 (NIV)
