Day One

The Power of Summer
Today is the day to begin our summer growth, a time to mature into a different way of thinking about how we can use and improve on what we learned from the Spring Devotions in this series. As we embrace the summer season and feel the warmth of the sun, we learn to rise up in the face of summer power and empowerment despite our personal adversities. The benefits of the season are bountiful...

Spending 20 minutes in the sun can:
  • Boost vitamin D levels (having many health benefits).
  • Provide an opportunity to get up and get going.
  • Improve our mood...
and more.

Things we can do while we are enjoying the outdoors: 
  • Appreciate the detail of a flower by looking at it closely with a camera or magnifying glass.
  • Smell new mown grass and feel it under our feet.
  • Spend time visiting with a friend...

 and more.

What are some other things I could add to these lists?
