Summer days are fleeting and precious. How we revel in time to dip our feet in cool waters, inhale the matchless smell of freshly cut grass, watch and marvel at the power of an afternoon thunderstorm. Yet these lazy days so quickly fill with the busy schedules of the season. We chase baseball tournaments, family vacations, camps, church activities. All are worthy pursuits but borrowers, too, from the limited moments available between the first sunrises of June and the lingering sunsets of August. This summer we would do well to listen to the admonition of Scripture. The writer of Hebrews tells us not to give up the habit of meeting together, that there are joys in fellowship that cannot be found anywhere else. The families on the following pages have committed to meet together each summer. They share food, friendship, games and stories. They meet at homes, on family farms, around tables and campfires, all with the aim of knowing each other well and building memories that outlast their time together. Summer days are fleeting and precious. But when we savor them with family, for years afterward the sweetness remains.
We want to keep in touch.
