Summer


Summer has begun. Finally. Nashville's winter was cold, and I hate cold. It is not possible to be too hot. Love hot.

Summer isn't just happening somehow. It isn't here by inertia or a kind of cosmic cycle of inevitability. Summer is now upon us because God in mercy and grace is giving it to us: "You have made summer" (Psalm 74:17).

May we use it with his mercy and grace in mind.
