DAILY DOSE OF HOPE – BLOG – NAIMA LETT
Summer, summer, summer time!
Summer officially starts on Wednesday, but my summer starts today.
Finished final doctoral residency. Currently in the airport. Headed to va-cay! Yay!
So what are your summer plans?
Got any vacations coming?
Taking up any new projects?
Shout out to our friend Bobby training for his mini marathon. Go forth!
Congratulations to our friends getting married and celebrating anniversaries. Woo-hoo!
Kudos to all the high school graduates headed for college, college graduates headed for jobs, and Masters & Doctorate friends headed for… what are you doing next?
And shout out to all the little people headed to summer camps, swimming lessons and vacation bible schools all over the nation. What a blast!
I love summer.
Folks are out in the sun.
Walking, biking, playing.
It’s the “play” part that’s awesome.
As artists, “playing” is necessary for our creativity.
Actors have been called “players” for a long time. Why? Because we know how to enter the great world of ‘What if?’ and possiblities.
As much as summer is fun though, I’m still reminded by Solomon’s proverb that summer is also a time of reaping.
He who gathers crops in summer is wise,
But he who sleeps during harvest is disgraceful.
In other words, we’ve got to know what to do and when to do it.
When it’s time to gather, let’s gather.
When it’s time to harvest, let’s harvest.
I look forward to jumping back in to work when we return, but for now, it’s time for fam, food and fun. Summer, summer, summer time!
