With a chilly voice.
Daylight turns off her light
Earlier, as each evening fades
Calendar creeps forward to the
Trying to enjoy each summer day while it lasts!)
Falling through life’s cracks?
Or are you a ground breaker?
Growing in the hard places,
Blooming where you’re planted,
In spite of dry times,
Letting nothing hold you back,
From reaching your goal?
Like teeming dandelions?
Of sunny days
Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.
Each day summer’s warmth is cut short
This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.
The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.
Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.
Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.
I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!

Enjoying summer in
Warmth of the sunshine
Seeps through ancient tree’s canopy
Ministering to my soul
(Visited the college today to get my books for the Fall semester and decided to take a walk around campus since it was such a nice day. Saw these lavender chairs and had to stop to rest in them.😊 )

Not looking for fame
Nor fortune beyond my needs
Just a simple life
Planting mustard seeds
On my knees, moving mountains,
Breaking down barriers.
Believe and Pray:
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV
The sun envelopes
Bees, birds and squirrels visit
Lazy summer day
Breeze carries children’s laughter
And sounds of the ice cream truck
