Summer Solstice

Year 5 - Day 170: Today, I am grateful for the longest day of the year.

I love sunshine. Today is the summer solstice... the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. "Twilight" will be exceptionally long, too. 

It is a beautiful day to give thanks for the beautiful balance on this pretty little planet. Science can and will explain what happens, but I can't help but sit back and be awed by the Creator. We are reminded to bow before the Creator and not the creation. 

"And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.-Deuteronomy 4:19 

The heavens, the earth and the sea are full of his splendor and a reminder of His majesty. Order and changing seasons... together... keep us watching and wondering.  Still, the instruction is to worship the creator and not on His creation. 

Savor the sunshine.
Dance with wild abandon.
Sing of the glory of the Lord.
Celebrate his creation. 
Worship his majesty.
Abandon the night.
Walk in the right.
Live in the light.

"For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light."-Ephesians 5:8

This day is full of light and chances to live in the Light. 

Today, I am grateful for the longest day of the year.
