In a matter of moments, or so it seems, our beloved city has moved from fifty-degree weather to the mid-nineties. You won’t find me complaining (too much). Summer in this city is truly magical. I find that when people shed the layers (literally and figuratively), there’s a sense of joy, freedom, and excitement for the future. I wonder, isn’t this a taste of what living with God and for God is like? There are days when my heart feels like it could burst because of the joy I have listening to a worship song, walking to work, and giving Him praise and glory. There’s no reason that feeling can’t last year-round. Sure, life isn’t a walk in the park, and there have been times when joy and praise have been the furthest things from my mind. But, if I can change that mindset and wake up each day acknowledging that I don’t have to walk through any circumstance (and that means literally anything) alone, can’t that “summer joy” exist?
In other exciting news, I’m going to be selling prints! Starting this Thursday, I’ll be launching prints for sale in two sizes. Make sure you don’t miss out by signing up for my monthly emails here. I can’t wait to tell you more about it and what I’ve been working to relaunch for quite some time now.
Now to this post. Like I said, summer in the city is nothing short of amazing. I went to the rooftop of the MET with some friends from church. Afterwards, we got Shake Shack and hung out drinking beer and chatting — basically the perfect summer evening. Take a look.
Summer is here indeed.
