I used to

close my eyes

and wish.

Now I

open my eyes

and celebrate.

Skies bluer than sapphires

Sun glowing, turned the world into High Definition.

Birds calling, trilling, chirping, clicking, singing

Swooping, sailing on a sky sea

Warm breeze a caress,

blowing sultry scents into nostrils.

Barbeque sauce tangoing on the tongue.

With friends, in fellowship,

we celebrate service above ourselves.

There is a lot to be thankful for in June.

.

June is Rotary Fellowships month.  Fellowships are Rotarians who share a passion, like chess, travel, puzzles, etc.

Nazarene preacher W. T. Purkiser said,

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”

So let us be thankful for our meal, our lives, our friends and our many blessings, and then let us use each to fuel positive change around us.
