Reflection Corner: Summer Blessings

May you walk with God in whatever you do

wherever you go this summer.

Walking with God means…

Walking with honesty

And with courage.

Walking with love and respect

and concern for the feelings of others.

May you talk to God

this summer

on everyday and in every situation

Talking with God means..

Praying word of praise

for the beauty of creation

saying prayer of thanks for friends and good times.

Asking God’s help in all your decisions.

Expressing sorrow when you have failed,

May you talk with God everyday. Amen.
