Summer Solstice

"...God makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good..."  Matthew 5:45 

"Summertime and the livin' is easy..."   George Gershwin,  "Porgy and Bess"

Today at 7:09 p.m. EDT the sun will be at it farthest point north on earth - the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere and the start of winter for our southern neighbors.  Today we have more time of sun and daylight than on any other.  It is a day to observe and celebrate the abundance of creation as the earth brings forth all manner of vegetation and fruit.  It is a day to remember and contemplate the potential and possibility within our lives, and that the same sun shines on us all. 

So, get outside and feel the sun's warmth, bite into a fresh vegetable or fruit, find a quiet shade and listen to the sounds of summer, remember all earth neighbors under the same sun, slow down a little and enjoy the longest day of the year.   Happy Summer Solstice!
