On The Bright Side – Mary Howell

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 6:28 am

 

The month of June is one of four months that have thirty days.  We always think of Father’s Day as the most important holiday in June but June has attributes to celebrate.  A quick look at the Internet reminds us that June 14th is Flag Day.  The first flag of the United States was adopted by Congress in 1777.  As we know now, our flag had thirteen stripes representing the first 13 states along with fifty stars which represent the fifty states.

 

June is named for the Roman goddess Juno.  The month of June is a popular month for weddings perhaps because Juno was the goddess of marriage.

 

June is also a popular time of the year for Vacation Bible School.  Sabine County churches of various denomination will be sponsoring Vacation Bible Schools to teach the children about God’s love and His Son, Jesus.

 

Historic events which occurred during June were Benjamin Franklin’s discovery of electricity and the Korean War began in June, 1950.

 

The flower for the month of June is the rose.  The rose is a symbol of love and appreciation and the rose also is the flower of passion.  Roses come in a wide variety of colors.  Each color has a different meaning.  Red roses symbolize love, white roses symbolize innocence and purity. Light pink roses are a symbol of admiration or sympathy.

 

Although June only has thirty days, let us be thankful for every day that God gives us a life and have a life on the bright side.
