Chapter 7, Page 1, Book 09

The angel of July brings a season of leisure, a time to play and replenish our energy.
The projects we began in the spring should be well underway and growing stronger on their own. July's angel urges us to take the time, now, to step back and observe what we have planted. The July angel encourages us to tend to the garden of our life, to care for what we have started, and to be objective enough to weed out the unhealthy or unproductive elements.
This angel of summer reminds us to nurture the people and things that bring us happiness, so we can produce for ourselves a crop of joy and fulfillment

There are so many nice things to celebrate in July. The birthday of our country is of course July 4th and there are usually plenty of nice warm days to enjoy the beach and picnics and campfires too.
I’ll be sharing plenty of quotes and stories on R & R – taking time out to refresh and renew ourselves and how to care for ourselves so that life can be more enjoyable and less of a burden.
One thing I’ve learned is that all work and no play makes for a very dull life. The good Lord gave us so much to enjoy that we do need to take the time to do so and in doing so also show our appreciation for it.
Each new month brings us some wonderful things to celebrate and I do try to do just that. Each new day is such a wonderful gift that we just cannot take those precious moments we have for granted.
At five minutes and six seconds after 4 AM on the 8th of July this year,
the time and date will be
04:05:06 07/08/09.
This will never happen again

‘On Ya’-ma

I totally agree. We need to take time to play. Yesterday we did just that. I'm so enjoying these road trips. Not too costly and a whole lot of fun. Have a wonderful Wed.
