Mar 27 – Can’t Wait for Summer to Come

“I can’t wait for summer to get here.” I heard those words from one woman shopper to another on a cold wintery day a few weeks ago It has indeed, been a very cold, snowy winter. But eventually warm summer days of fresh air and recreation in these beautiful Maritimes will be upon us. It will be a relief from deep seated boredom and fatigue and “cabin fever. The prime minister of Australia, speaking after an election a while back said, “the people want something. I don’t know what it is, but it is not material.” And that’s the truth. What we need to satisfy us is not better forms of leisure and recreation, but deep inner recreation that will change our lives. As we willingly face up to our spiritual needs and look to God, we will discover inner peace that Jesus promised, when He said, “I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.”
