I used to dread July and her evil twin August. The jury is still out on August, but July has won my heart. Maybe because she is nestled in between the craziness of the beginning of summer (June) and gearing back up (August).
Maybe it's because she dons herself in stars, stripes and sparklers.
Maybe because she brings forth the colors of her Creator
And wraps herself up in family gatherings.
She woos me with her vine ripened delights and hot summer nights.
She gives us reason to celebrate
Yes, July has won me over with her s'mores, fireflies, afternoon thunderstorms, and long lasting twilights.
