weekly image of life … summer

Summer …

It touches the senses with a certain glow that leaves the consciousness throbbing with the pulses of life.

The eyes see vivid bursts of color beaming with joy, the sweet scent of flowers abloom gives comfort to the weary heat of summer, the quiet semblance of beauty echoes the inner peace and the soft and smooth touch of the silky petals mimic the well-planned escapades to enjoy the season of sun!

Summer is a gift of weaving moments to bond with family and friends.  It is a chance to extract from routine and conquer serendipities that bless the soul allowing the Lord to embrace us with HIS loving arms, lifting the burdens of worries and uncertainties.

Summer is a season to bask in the sun and have plain fun.  This freedom should make us choose defined options of truth that will give honor and glory to God alone.

In Ecclesiastes 3, verse 1 it says:

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”

  1. A beautiful, radiant version of Summer, “Summer is a gift of weaving moments to bond with family and friends. It is a chance to extract from routine and conquer serendipities that bless the soul allowing the Lord to embrace us with HIS loving arms, lifting the burdens of worries and uncertainties.” The yellow flower in his post reminds me of the many unforgettable Summers I had growing up in the Philippines. I used to go to the beach every weekend with my sisters and cousins and the coastal landscape is full of these tropical beauties. Thanks for helping me remember of the many happy childhood memories.

    1. Hi Mr. B, it is my pleasure to have done that for you … but i must tell you that these bushes that grow these flowers (“kalachuchi”, if i am not mistaken) are now a rarity. not many people are planting them anymore …

  2. Beautifully said, April…Plumeria the symbol of affection in a garland hug around your neck like a lei 🙂

    1. Hi Allyson … great to hear from you, thank you for visiting!

      i remember when we went to Hawaii years ago, my dad’s friend gave us a lei, not knowing the tradition that we should have worn it as a sign of honoring the giver, i held the lei in my hand which was in a box all throughout the evening. my dad had to apologize for the “rude” behavior, but he actually “reprimanded” his sister (who has been living in the islands for decades) for not telling us earlier.

please take a moment ... and tickle me pink!
