Welcome June! The humidity rises, the sun radiates its warmth and light later each day. This is the month to sip a cool drink on the porch and stay up late to watch the lightning bugs flicker in the trees. June is a blessing of lushness - fragrant flowers, sun-tanned skin and starry nights fill the senses. This month, answer the call to relax, refresh and read an escapist book.
In case you need more reasons to celebrate you should know that June is National:
~Iced Tea Month
~Frozen Yogurt Month
~Zoo & Aquarium Month
just to name a few!
Don't forget that Father's Day is June 19th and the first day of Summer is June 21st!
Maybe June is also your wedding anniversary month? It is the most popular month for weddings in the US! We will be celebrating our 15th anniversary on Flag Day which is June 14th.
June is also a big month of holy days in the Catholic Church:
The Ascension of Jesus Bodily into Heaven falls on Thursday, June 2nd but in most areas has been transferred to Sunday, June 5th to allow for greater attendance.
Pentecost is Sunday, June 12th.
The Trinity is Sunday, June 19th.
Corpus Christi falls on Thursday, June 23rd but will be celebrated on Sunday, June 26th.
These four celebrations basically sum up the Christian beliefs of the Catholic faith. I look forward to exploring them each a little more deeply this month.
Now, go pick a rose by a river and bless a child by taking him to the zoo, where you eat frozen yogurt, sip iced tea and play the accordion!
