Welcome the gift of Summer as an opportunity…
to reflect on the journey that you have travelled since last Summer,
to thank God for his steadfast presence in all that you have experienced,
… in your joys, your successes, your dreams fulfilled,
… in your struggles, your pain, your sadness,
… in moments of clarity and in times of uncertainty,
… in those who have walked the road with you.
Trust, that God is always with you, each stage of your journey,
… in the twists and turns,
… in the hidden paths,
… as you stand on the crossroads,
… as you step out into the unknown.
Rest now awhile in God’s tender, loving and compassionate embrace…
Be renewed and refreshed…
