For Sunday, July 3rd, 2011
Stay Out of the Sun Day encourages us stay cool in the shade, and to give our skin a rest from the hot, damaging rays of the sun.
The sun is directly over head. We're in the middle of summer, when the temperatures are the hottest, and the sun is the brightest. It's not a bad day to take a break from catching all of those rays and stay out of the sun.
Find some fun and relaxing ways to stay in the shade. A hammock strung behind two shady tress sounds like a great way to go!
1 16-oz can kidney beans
1 16-oz can lima beans or butter beans
6 slices of bacon
1/2 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons vinegar
To be good instruments of God's love we must avoid being over tired, burnt out, stressed, aggressive, dispersed or closed up. We need to be rested, centred, peaceful and aware of the needs of our body, our heart and our spirit.
When we are tired and wearied it is hard to do anything. It is even more difficult on a spiritual level, to do anything proper. It is always a difficult challenge to find the balance between work, rest and play. But as we journey through these weeks of summer there is a better chance of finding that balance. As many enjoy a well earned holiday it is up to us to create time for rest and relaxation. No one else is going to do it for us and no one is going to thank us if we don't.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
