It has been a great Sunday. As I write this I am sitting on my back patio under the ceiling fan, rocking on my wooden bench with Stanley by my side. The temperature reads 90 but where I'm sitting it feels 75. Nice! Blue skies, clear sunny day with a slight breeze.
It is at times like these that I have confidence that the oppressive heat of summer is dissipating. Although we may have some scorching days over the next month, it is bearable because I know that cooler weather is just around the corner.
The heat of a Texas summer is like certain times in our lives when we are on the hot seat. It is at those times when unrest, discomfort and hard times oppress us and we begin to think that our lives forever will be stuck in the Texas summer heat. Whatever your hot seat is...whatever your hard time is I encourage you to look up. God is faithful and He hears our prayers. When your hope is in God you most certainly will see cooler weather ahead. The hard times of your life will pass and the next season will come.
We've been blessed this week and have received abundant rain. A soaking rain, actually. The trees, flowers and plants on my patio are rejoicing, I know! As I walk around and drive around I smile to see nature coming back to life and turning back to green! A sigh of relief. Nothing like a cool glass of water (or a summer soaker rain) to refresh us....
Well, Stanley is asleep and I'm starting to get sleepy, so we are going inside to take a nap. :) Yes, this Sunday is simply wonderful and nice.
See you soon,
