Summer Days Are Here!

Time has seemed to escape me.  The summer began June 20th, 2012 a day earlier than normal because we are in a leap year.  Life is busy as usual but honestly it seems to have taken on supersonic speed.  Here we are in July and so far I have to say the summer weather is living up to it's name.

 For those who love the summer I know you are happy.  There is a lot to love about summer. A sweet serenity now possesses the land. The green world is now fully green. It is the days of long twilights, and balmy evenings, a delightful invitation to dine out of doors, with family and friends.  Fruits and vegetables, perhaps from your own garden.  Nothing like a delicious homegrown tomato just picked from the vine.

Picnics, barbecues, boating, fishing, relaxing in those easy chairs at the ocean and swimming at the beach, or pool.  Graduation parties, weddings, and most important District Conventions, being held around the world, and which some of our friends will be attending. Hopefully we will be able to go next time.

Yes, summer is a time to have fun in the sun.  It also can get so hot you can see the heat quiver over fields of ripening grain, and the grass gets sun burnt and dry and you could fry an egg on the blistering hot pavement.  Make sure you wear plenty of sun screen, and have plenty of fans!!

I want to share this beautiful video that captures the sights and sounds of summer, and draws us closer to the one who made it all Jehovah our heavenly Father and Creator.  "How many your works are O Jehovah! All of them in wisdom you have made. The earth is full of your productions." Psalms 104:24,25.

This is Raven - as the crow flies!
