Mary worshipped as Martha toiled
One’s pleasure found, the other’s spoiled.
But wouldn’t the world be best, I ask
If both had shared the other’s task?
~ C. Lee
Father we bring before You the joys of summer. We remember that all life comes from You and that the glory of summer is a reflection of You. In the midst of vacation plans and celebrations may we always be thankful for the world You have created for us, with its beauty and bounty. May the coming months refresh our spirits and bring us closer to You. Amen
