Where Did the Summer Go?

Where did the summer go? 

Wasn’t this the fastest one on record?

Summer should get a speeding ticket!

If you’re like most of us, you’re shaking your head and wondering how September could possibly be right around the corner.

If your summer was good, remind yourself that the tans will fade, but the memories will last forever.

If yours was not so good, remind yourself that another one will come around next year (God willing), and rather than mourn its passing, here’s a prescription for curing the end-of-summer blues:

Thank God for life, and make a list of 10 other blessings.

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), philosopher, mathematician, theologian, and physicist, said: There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of a man which cannot be satisfied by any created being but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.  

He also said, All men’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quiet in a room alone.

So turn off the electronic devices, brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea, take a deep breath, and inhale the silence.

There’s no charge for blessed solitude.
