Summer stretched before us, endless and exciting.
But sometime near the end of July, the scorching hot and sweaty humid days melded into each other and kept my sister and me inside. Boredom set in, and even the perpetual stack of library books couldn’t completely banish it for me. Summer had become routine.
As much as we crave summer’s fun and frolic, it can become a bit ho-hum after a while. One way to keep it fresh for ourselves and our families is to look for beauty in the ordinary. God has filled this world with beauty for us to enjoy, but in our busyness, we don’t always see it. These ideas can help you see and enjoy the every day beauty of summer.
