Pause for Prayer
By Karen Schoeppach
The days of summer are speeding by. We are closer to the beginning of school than we are to those last days of the previous school year. Teachers start to plan for the upcoming school year and students are trying to enjoy every bit of summer vacation that is left. Even those of us who no longer get that “many weeks long” summer break, still may feel it is flying by. We need to slow life down.
Lord, we admit that we spend more time worrying about how fast the summer days are going by instead of enjoying each day as the gift You have given to us. With gratitude to You, we will live each day to its fullest and stop fretting about the number of days which remain. Lord, hear our prayer. Amen.
