SWEET SUMMERTIME

“Good morning world, what do you think of when you hear the words sweet summertime? Well again many things have come to my mind..... some divine and some unkind. 
 
So thinking past the storms, tornados, hurricanes and the fact that summer is Hot as hell, happily there is another softer side to summertime as well.
 
Saying that I think you will agree…. many wonderful memories also come to mind easily ! Well, at least they do for me!
 
So thinking about a time when I did not need wine to get through my days, my thoughts of sweet summertime all seem to circulate around a childhood memory attached to a special, beautiful, peaceful place! 

That means summertime and the words sweet and peaceful each seem to describe the child that I used to be when I lived at the lake. 
 
Therefore looking back at a connected Once Upon a Time, expecting an old  happily ever after to rewind, my neat reminiscences of summer still lazily spin through my memories mind as they remind me when I once loved to run, wild, and free as a kid. 
 
 Accordingly thinking of the time when I was a child, summertime defines the place where I spent all my days sleeping a lot in the cool evenings and day-dreaming in the mild mornings, during my summer school break ,while sitting outside on the pier at our special lake. 
 
And in those fond water reflections I loved sweet summertime as I watched the hot season leave. To me it looked like Heaven waved its wand just by turning the green colors into the autumn trees, while I was living by the large, water pond.

Yes indeed I treasured swimming, also fishing then investigating all kinds of many interesting things I found, while rolling over in the graceful clover, and bravely climbing through the grey caves. 
 
I also loved riding bikes on the dirt lanes, while playing with the soft and odd calling creatures of the lake some that were even peeking at me in the waves. 
 
And in those thoughts staying at our summer cabin I adored listening to the bullfrogs as they sung their lovely twilight lullaby serenades.
 
During the night time I also cherished chasing the fireflies that looked like a million floating glowing diamonds lighting up the sky. 
 
During the day time I additionally treasured swimming in the cold water as I watched and then caught the fish silently swimming by. 
 
Thankfully summertime was full of great memories that still come to mind, as I also have nice recollections of eating hand churned sweet ice cream, while diving face first into a garden fresh watermelon that dripped down my chin and pleased my eyes.
 
Happily when my mother and father were alive I  had a great time living in our cabin at the lake year after year… again and again…. time after time!
 
Merrily it seems like all of my summertime memories circled around family, love, fish, butterfly's, swimming, the lake, security and the delicious time when I was just a young one running wild! 
 
So substituting your summer memories and removing mine.... I know you too have many special recollections of sweet childhood summertime!

Understandably as innocent children I realize that all of our juvenile summer times were as sweet as summer wine! 

Yes indeed I know you will agree with me that we each use to love summertime!
 
But how about now? How about in our life, as we are working, sick, wrinkled, slow, old, moldy, sun-spotted, and hot as hell!  Do we still get a thrill out of summertime as well?
 
And knowing that summer is not as much fun...Why is it summertime no longer makes us smile? So what has happened to our "inner Once Upon a Time locked up inside our heart" who we used to be innocent child? 
 
What does happen to us when we grow up and loose our sweet summer-times?

Why is it now only the stormy, scary,  tired of working and Hot as hell things.... come to mind?
 
What has happened to sweet summertime?
 
Well like everything else in our life that has moved on or gone away…..we have lost family, seen butterflies die, and misplaced love with pain, because it seems nothing good ever stays.

And in our bitterness of life and distrust of happiness we no longer fish or chase lake breezes as we run barefoot through the steamy season. Because we have misplaced the sweet security of pure innocence and have replaced that divine time with sin, and sin-icism .

So needing things to change here are some more questions you need to answer today.
 
Does losing our sense of humor at the end of the ride....mean our childhood summer-times were just lies? 

Does dying inside mean we can no longer be alive?

Does growing up mean we will never chase butterflies, fish, or swim? 

Are we doomed to never again know the sweet summertime glow of  innocence?

Does losing our soul to the world.... since we will no longer allow ourselves to play, pray, praise, run, be happy, wild, free, or dream.....mean that summer sunrises are just a waste of time?

Bottom line. While drowning in the sinful fearful tears of the night... no longer seeing the Son-light.... have we forever lost our inner child?
  
And the answer is No. No, happily we are not doomed to grow old, moldy, cold, be alone, or endlessly cry. 
 
Because I believe in the warmth of the Son found in Heavenly forgiveness through salvation on our way back home there will forever be innocence, love, fish, lake breezes, and butterflies where we are going. 
 
That means playing around Heaven's special place found in a new beginning space ......while following Jesus Christ to paradise ....in our eternal life my saved friend ..... we will all delight in our eternal summer times once again!” Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
 
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way.  Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
 
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
 
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
 
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day.  I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
 
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
 
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I  will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
 
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
Amen
 
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
