Today’s Word: ‘Summer’ … as in where did it go?
So that’s the letter from the parents to their child. A poignant reminder of what I’ve always referred to as “the high cost of loving so deeply.”
Our summer has fled. Perhaps there is a sense of growing-pain for some. For others, a summer fled along with the change in tree colors and temperatures means new directions, new opportunities, new hope. But whatever the depth of feeling, whatever the range of emotion, perhaps as the writer of the letter put it, and perhaps as the parents whose hands I squeezed would hope to believe, the good news of the Gospel touches us precisely at these moments; moments upon which we shall one day look back and say, “Wow, it seems like only yesterday! So much has happened since then!”
