A Blessing For Summer

Take time to claim your strength; they are gifts of God.

Take time to have fun; it’s God’s way of teaching you your strengths.

Take time to grow yourself; only you can grow you.

Take time to trust yourself; God trusts you.

Take time to be self-reliant; it is better than being dependent.

Take time to share with others; they will bless you, and you will bless them.

Take time to have hope, you are a child of God.

Let’s put ourselves into the hands of the Lord,and pray that God will bless us

and our families  during the wonderful months of summer.

May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety.

May we be generous and considerate,not thinking only about ourselves,

but helping others enjoy the blessings of a summertime.

Lord God, Creator of all things, guide our steps and strengthen our hearts,

during these months of summer and holidays.

Grant us refreshment of mind and body. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
