Of course, officially there are still 11 days until summer.  However, I hear that the Americans are already out of school, and with our temperatures in the high-20s it feels like summer at long last!  So to celebrate here is a summer invocation for myRotary friends!

We are thankful for the warmth that summer brings

For friends from afar gathered ’round our table.

For the warmth of the caressing summer air,

humming with chittering, twittering things

For time off work  to do what we are able,

to embrace a hurting world into our care
