Summertime is usually a season when people focus on warm weather, beach vacations, and a much slower pace.
As George Gershwin wrote, “Summertime and the livin’ is easy…”
As I always say, Life, as we know it, can change in an instant…
And I wrote several times about the enormous worry when Austin and Perry, the 14-year old boys from Tequesta, Florida, went out of the Jupiter, Florida Inlet on a small boat and became lost at sea. This happened just twelve miles north of our home on Singer Island in Palm Beach County.
We usually do not realize the hand of God guiding us through tough times until after we get through the worst. Reflecting back, we are better able to see “the good” that has come out of a bad situation.
The famous “Footprints” prayer comes to mind.
In good times and in bad, God is good… All the time. Amen.
