Are you enjoying the sweetness of summer? John Piper said that summer is "God’s messenger with a sun-soaked, tree-green, flower-blooming, lake-glistening letter of love to show us what He is planning for us in the age to come—'things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, God has prepared for those who love him'" (1 Corinthians 2:9). What a wonderful way to look at it! May your spirit be refreshed this season.
