Savor the Summer!

It's the weekend - what'cha got planned?
Will you play in the water, 
or play in the sand...?
Or lie in meadow, gazing at the sky
pretending you're a butterfly, flying up high...?

Will you open a paint box
and make a glorious mess...?
Or color outside the lines
without one ounce of stress...?

Will you scale the highest mountains,
or climb the tallest trees...?
Or fly to the farthest planets,
or sail the seven seas...?

Will you dance with abandon,
and skip as you go...?
Or catch fireflies just after
the sun's final glow...?

Will you rejoice in each day,
let your imagination run wild, 
and savor your Summer
like you did as a child...?

But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! 
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children."
