Happy Solstice!!

I hope everyone had a blessed midsummer! I had lots of plans but unfortunately the sun never made an appearance all day, we even had a thunder and lightening storm! It rained for most of the day, but I didn't mind, I love storms and the rain, (I guess it's good that I live in Northern Ireland, I must be the only one who does!) Although my plans of an outdoor celebration were not possible, I took time to appreciate the need for and refreshment of the rain, and welcomed the energy of the storm. If such weather never happened then the land would not be green and grow crops, there would be famine and drought, and I am thankful everyday that I live in a place where such things do not affect the people living here today. As this is a day to celebrate the height of the God's power, although not visible, I thanked the sun for it's constant energy, heat and light, without which we would not have food, warmth or sight, and recognised that from this day on the sun's potency will diminish until the winter solstice. As the wheel of the year turns once more, it will bring the harvest, warm evenings and long sunsets, all showing the power and breathtaking beauty of nature. Blessed Be! xx

A taste of my midsummer weather.

The sun didn't shine all day!


  1. How positively Beautiful!
    Rain is a way we wash the spirit..

  2. I agree, rain is my favourite weather! It's so refreshing and helps me to sleep at night :)
