The summer here in Missouri has been a bit like one in a desert with little or no rain and high temperatures with low humidity that kept many of us indoors. Not to let the season slip away unnoticed, several of us took the time one evening to bid farewell to summer’s early sunrises and long days by holding a campfire. The night was near perfect. The wind was still, the sky was a bit overcast and the temperature dropped a few degrees as we felt the warmth of the fire in front and the cool of the evening on our backs.
We roasted marshmallows and made s’mores. We shared stories and laughed heartily. We sang a few bars of some campfire songs. Mostly we enjoyed the company of each other and the beauty of the fire. The evening ended with a round of “For Your Gracious Blessings,” a song we often sing at table after a festive meal. It was a fitting end to summer and a lovely welcome to autumn. This is a piece of our continuous praise of God. We are looking forward to the time when we once again can sing God’s praise at a campfire.
