Summertime puns
What do you call a snowman in July?  A puddle
What holds the sun up in the sky? Sunbeams
What does the sun drink out of? Sunglasses

If you are lucky enough to live until your eighties you will have spent an average of  twenty four years sleeping,twenty years working,ten years on holiday,seven years eating,six years traveling,four years being ill and two years getting dressed. Lets hope we all get some of those ten years on holiday during the next couple of months and let us pray for a glorious sunny peaceful summertime.


Life seems to get more and more busy and less time is given to recreation and relaxation
Christian philosopher Kierkegaard said; “The press of business is like a charm....seeking to take hold of ever-younger victims so that we are scarcely allowed time for God to develop in us Christian character.  

This summer take time to re balance your life, Its a mistake to think that rushing through life buys you more time. It may keep your adrenaline pumping and perhaps makes you feel and look important but busyness can be an enemy to your soul. It can prevent you from reflecting and examining your heart, the quality of your life and its product.

Ephesians 5: 15-16
Look carefully then how you walk,not as unwise but wise, making the best use of the time,because the days are evil.
