SWEET SUMMERTIME

“Good morning world. As you know yesterday I was writing about Tornados of the Soul. Twisters of the Spirit. And Hurricanes of Pain. So today I thought I would leave the storms behind, and I would concentrate on Sweet Summertime once again!
 
Therefore closing the stormy doors, I am now wondering, 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. 
 
Bottom line, while thinking past the storms, tornados, hurricanes, twisters, and the fact that summer is Hot as hell….. happily there is, and has always been another softer side to summertime as well.
 
Saying that I think you will agree with me….that many wonderful summertime memories also have come to mind easily ! 
 
Well, at least they have 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 loving, fulfilling, 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, while expecting an old Happily-Ever-After to rewind, my neat reminiscences of summer still lazily spin through my memories mind…. as the Lake reminds me, when I once loved to run, wild, and free as a kid. 
 
Accordingly thinking of the time when I was a child, summertime and our cabin at the Lake, both defined the place where I spent all my days sleeping a lot in the cool evenings…. and dreaming in the mild mornings, while kissing the suns face. 
 
Yes during my school break ,while sitting outside on the pier at our special lake eating fried chicken with fixing’s life was great! 
 
And in those fond water reflections I loved sweet summertime as I watched the old school season go by. 
 
So living at the lake with fish jumping, and frogs croaking…. to me it looked like Heaven waved its wand… just by turning the winter snow into the green colors of summertime, while I was living by the large, water pond.

And during those sweet summertime's from two years old to seventeen, I treasured swimming, also fishing, then investigating all kinds of many interesting things I found, while rolling over in the graceful four leaf 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 turtles, snakes and muskrats that were even peeking at me in the waves. 
 
And in those sweet summertime thoughts while staying at our summer cabin I adored listening to the bullfrogs as they sung their lovely twilight lullaby serenades in the fading light.
 
Also during the night time I cherished chasing the fireflies that looked like a million floating glowing diamonds lighting up the sky. 
 
And during the day time I additionally treasured swimming in the cold water as I watched and caught the fish silently swimming by. 
 
Thankfully sweet summertime was always full of great memories that still come to mind.
 
And 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…. everything about sweet summertime pleased my eyes again and again.
 
Happily when my mother and father were alive I  had a great time living in our cabin at the lake year after year…  time after time!
 
Merrily it seems like all of my summertime memories circled around family, love, fishing, butterfly's, swimming, the lake, my Faith, the Lords Grace, security and wishing that the delicious time when I was just a young one running wild would never end! 
 
So substituting your summer memories and removing mine.... I know you too have many special recollections of sweet childhood summertime that please you again and again!
 
That means 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 WAIT. How about now…. since we need wine to survive? 
 
How about in our life today, as we are working, sick, wrinkled, slow, old, moldy, sun-spotted, and hot as hell with no delights!  
 
Do we still get a thrill out of summertime as well? 
 
And knowing that summer is not as much fun when we get older...
 
Why is it… summertime no longer makes us smile? 
 
Bottom line. WHAT HAS HAPPENED…. TO OUR SWEET CHILDHOOD that we left behind?
 
What has happened to our "inner Once-Upon-a-Time locked up inside our heart" 
 
What has happened to our innocent Inner child as life has torn us apart? 
 
And not knowing the answers to those questions, here are some more in that line.
 
What happens to us when we grow up…. and loose our sweet summer-times?
 
What happens when we forget to smile?
 
Why is it now only the stormy, scary,  tired of working and Hot as hell things.... define life?
 
Bottom line one more time. What has happened to sweet summertime, since you have lost your mind?
 
Well like everything else in our life that has moved on or gone away sadly our summertime memories have also faded.
 
That means since we have grown up, Things have changed!
 
And tragically in those Changes…..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. 
 
We no longer chase lake breezes as we run barefoot through the steamy season. 
 
And we no longer wish! 
 
Sadly it seems we also no longer Dream.
 
Because…. we have misplaced the sweet security of pure Heavenly innocence and have replaced that divine fun innocent time with sin, and SIN-icism .
 
But wait does life really need to be That Way?

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 your soul to the world.... since you will no longer allow yourself to play, pray, praise, run, be happy, wild, free, or dream while going along your way.....mean that your sweet 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, or endlessly cry while being alone! 
 
Because I believe in the warmth of the Son found in Heavenly Forgiveness through Salvation…. as we are all on our way back home there will forevermore be innocence, love, fish, lake breezes, and butterflies where we are going.
 
That means playing around in Heaven's special place found in a new beginning space ......while following Jesus Christ to Paradise things will always be sweet.
 
Therefore never closing childhoods door ....while living in Heaven on Earth today and before in our Eternal life my saved friend .....I know deep down in my soul, just by praying and Praising every-day that we can right now and will forever, delight in our Eternal Sweet Summer times once again!” Joslin Fitzgerald  
 
Thank you for reading my blog please know that you have just been prayed for( as I am also asking that you are praying for me. ) In that prayer please additionally know that every word I am writing is Spirit sent in its heavenly direction leading you to....
 
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!
