Summer Rush

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Oh, the joy 
of the summer rush, 
to eat tomatoes before they become too ripe,
to use the figs while they are fresh,
to catch crabs before they scamper away,
to capture sunsets before they fade, 
 to Go Fish as long as they ask,
 and to thank God for it all. 

I'm feeling a rush to stillness
to breathe, and say,
                                                              Thank you, 
Thank you, 
                                                                                     Thank you,
for the rapid-fire blessings of this season.

What are you rushing towards this summer?

  1. I'm rushing towards spending time with my little one and finding joy in being in the kitchen making actual meals again. It's so wonderful to receive sweet little boy kisses in exchange for holding fake ants. What a gift!

  2. I just love this photo journey, Courtney! {I am rushing toward finishing a book proposal before the She Speaks conference this month - not so much fun!!}

  3. What beautiful pictures! I'm rushing to enjoy this last month of summer--every day--because the first half flew by so quickly (as it always does)!

  4. Catching a crab? Now THAT would be awesome! (Can't do that in the prairies, that's for sure!)
