Pastor’s Message: June is Total Grandeur and Heavenly Abundance
Life in our world abounds in the month of June! It seems that the summer weather, and the vegetation growth, and the children free from school have burst upon us very sudden like and awaken us to the full glory and beauty of God’s creation. Every year this June explosion is captivating and it succeeds in helping us to forget the Wisconsin winter. The Welsh poet William Henry Davies captured this June extravaganza very well in his poem “All in June”;
All in June
A week ago I had a fire
To warm my feet, my hands and face;
Cold winds, that never make a friend,
Crept in and out of every place.
Today the fields are rich in grass,
And buttercups in thousands grow;
I’ll show the world where I have been-
With gold-dust seen on either shoe.
Till to my garden back I come,
Where bumble-bees for hours and hours
Sit on their soft, fat, velvet bums,
To wriggle out of hollow flowers.
Father God created this wonderful and full world for us to enjoy and participate in. I pray that each one of us can slow down and observe His gift to us in order to savor because it is gone again too soon. Realize too that we are created to glorify God and a large part of this is to praise and exalt him for His creation and the beauty he has revealed to us. Remember, that all of this is merely a glimpse of what is to come: A glimpse of the full Kingdom of God!
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. –Ephesians 2:10
Enjoy this glorious June that has revealed itself to you in total grandeur and heavenly abundance. Soak it in and live it up! Relax in the warm splendor of June and savor the making of new memories!
Take good care of yourselves and work to stay healthy. Remain steadfast, faithful, and hopeful!
See you soon Brothers and Sisters In Christ!
