Phoebe with a new toy
Actually summer in Texas isn’t blue, it’s RED HOT! I now avoid the weather app, because I know what it’s going to say. 100+ for the next 15 days. ((sigh)) I realize the heat isn’t limited to Texas. I read it was 100 degrees in Anchorage, Alaska last week. Wow!
So do you get the summer blues? I’m noticing that people around me are acting a bit sluggish. Maybe we’re all conserving our energy. Always, when the weather turns to blazing hot, I remember this verse from Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, verse 1.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
When I was a child, with no a/c in our house, summertime was a time to read, work on jigsaw puzzles, and if we had a chance play in the water hose. Not a lot has changed since then. We have a/c, but I still use summer to read, and if I can get away with it I play in the water hose. My dogs love that!
If you find yourself feeling a bit blue, tired, or under the weather, just remember that there’s a time for every season … and we’ll be laughing about this in September.
How do YOU spend hot, summer days? Leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you and your comment could encourage someone else!
