Lazy Hazy Days

Yes summer is here and with it lazy hazy days - days when you feel like doing nothing - relaxing - lying on a beach - by the pool - sipping your favorite brew. After coping with the winter and spring chores - summer calls us to relax - if possible - to a state of nothing. Sure the lawn needs to be mowed - every 4 days - the weeds need to be pulled - repairs to the outside of the house and deck are calling your name. These are the days when everyone needs to decompress - come down to a normal level of activity - walk away from the daily stress of life - jobs - obligations. No harm in taking respite - relaxing - for the sake of relaxing. For myself that means less blogging - more time on other things - enjoying the gifts God has placed around me. Spending all day pulling weeds means no time to appreciate the beauty of nature around you - fingers in the dirt - less time for eyes in the sky. 


As we enjoy all the gifts of God we have to remember that taking time to be quiet - alone with our thoughts - with our God - is our highest priority. Failing to relax in the beautiful nature around us - our  loss. Take courage - those tasks will always be with us - these beautiful summer days will pass all too swiftly. Enjoy them now.
