It's Almost Summer!
Here in New Jersey, Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer. "Down the shore" hotels, motels, arcades are all hoping for warm weather and blue skies. There are so many issues today that it is hard to get into that summer spirit. As Christians, we are people of hope. We are called to be "happy." So let's be happy - let the world see "Christ in us."
I posted this video - from 1967! This song was a big hit - and whenever I hear it - it reminds me of the days of my youth - going to the beach in Lavallette, New Jersey. A time of no worries or cares. That time is long gone, but the memories of "Groovin on a Sunday afternoon" remain.
