CAREFREE SUMMER DAYS
Like carefree summer days of childhood,
this summer day
A joy renewed that kindles memories past.
Happy days when all seemed simple.
In retrospect, the view is clearer now…
Not totally carefree – but perceived as such
through childish eyes.
Now, more mature eyes fully comprehend.
The future looms…
The present weighs heavy with its burdens…
But Christ – His joy and mercy sharing
Bids only rest – and HE will carry…
True carefree summer days within us—

Listening to the birds and watching the squirrels—sitting on my patio resting—mediating—feeling at peace. It reminded me of my “carefree” childhood!
