Having entered the seventh month of the year, I reckon, like me, you will be saying " how did that happen ? " Well, we are where we are and knowing we can't harness time, perhaps the simple things in life become more precious and assist us in facing our adversity. This week, Brother Rev. Craig alludes to that.

I don’t know about you but I’ve been really enjoying this weather. The garden’s never looked so good but I think my wife’s getting a wee bit sick of the sight of me. It taxes the imagination at times like this trying to keep everything fresh and new ideas flowing. One of my daughters persuaded me to try a butterfly garden – it’s not as complicated as you think; scatter some wild flower seeds and sit back and let it grow wild. In my boredom I hover over it every day to see if anything new has happened. I’ll bet you’ve all got similar stories of what you’re doing to pass the time. Nothing’s opening quickly enough and I fear it may be some time before we’re back in our lodges too. This feels like one of those troughs in the rollercoaster of life but that’s good because that means we’re about to climb out of it. It’s time for the slog upwards, getting things done, getting organised then we reach the top, pass over the crest and it’s the crazy outrageous ride down again. Waving our arms, screaming like teenagers and having fun. Sometimes the mundane creeps in but always remember that the fun is always just around the corner.
