Thoughts for the Month

June

This is such a lovely month – it has the longest day (most hours of daylight) in it and Midsummer Day. Gardens look beautiful and everyone has a lightness of step that was not seen in the winter months. It is a time for rejoicing, giving thanks for all the wonderful gifts that we have received.

In Acts Chapter 2 we read, ‘therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced;’

We have so much to be thankful for, especially when we look around the world and see countries torn apart by war, famine, natural disasters and dictatorship. We are fortunate to live in a land with a temperate climate and no major geological faults.

How often do we stop and look at the wonder around us, at our coast line with its coves and bays, the high cliffs, rolling dunes, sandy beaches and the wild life that live there. Look at the open moorland with its tors and pools and animals roaming free; the woodland with its trees reaching for the sky, their branches casting a shade across the carpets of wild flowers.

We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful county, but we are custodians of it. We need to look after these wonders for future generations so that they too may enjoy the wonders that we so often take for granted.

Rejoice and give thanks for the nature around us.In Acts Chapter 2 we read, ‘therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced;’
