As the sun rises higher in the sky
and the days grow longer,
we thank You for the gift of summer.
We rejoice in the beauty of creation that surrounds us,
from the blooming flowers to the gentle breeze.
In these first days of summer,
we seek Your blessings and guidance.
Fill our hearts with joy and gratitude
for the wonders of Your creation.
May we find solace and peace in the warmth of the sun,
and may it remind us of the light of Your love
that shines upon us always.
