Pool parties. Graduation celebrations. Baseball games. Vacation flights.
But not always. Not this year.
Expectations are challenged. Thoughts shuffle. The shape of summer is arranged. And then rearranged.
Never having been this way before the heart – and mind – do not quite know what to make of these unexpected days. Shuffling the shape of summer. Arranging. Rearranging. Questioning. And. Still hoping. For normal.
Yet. In the midst of it all. There stands the Creator. Our Lord. Shaping summer. Holding steady in the unexpected and unfamiliar. Owning it all. Guarding each day. His faithfulness superseding all else.
“You own the day, you own the night; you put stars and sun in place. You laid out the four corners of earth, shaped the seasons of summer and winter.” Psalm 74:16-17, The Message
