August 31. Yay!

As much as I dislike the fact that my life seems to slipping down the water slide at turbo speed, the end of August couldn’t come soon enough for me.

Sure we still have some 90-degree days in store, perhaps through October. But psychologically, August ends the summer heat and ushers in the coolness of Autumn.

There are those of you out there—you know who you are—that enjoy the heat. But really, what are you thinking? In fact, how can you think when your brain is sizzling?

In truth, I praise God for His plan for our world; for creating weather patterns that transfer heat, cool temperatures and water from one place on this great planet to another.

I praise God for creating variety—the changing seasons; the coolness of early morning and late night with the warmth of daytime in between.

I praise God for giving weather that soothes each of us in whatever way He created us to enjoy it.

And as we end August and look to cooler temperatures, I praise God that now, He’ll start making the weather just for me!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for variety in all things—especially in people. Remind us that variety is good. Remind us that your plan is good even if we don’t understand it, because you are good. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Are you a crazy person who likes heat? It’s OK, God loves you anyway…[smile]

I love the change of seasons, but the summer heat is my least favorite... go figure, for a dude who lives in Florida, right! I could go on and on complaining about it... but why? hee hee, there are hotter places... like the place where the evil one resides, and I know I don't want to go there!! just sayin' - :-)

@ Chris - So relieved to find that you're not one of those crazy people that like heat, after all.

I'm with you, by the end of the summer I am weary of the heat. The end of August usually means cooler evenings even if the day was hot. Thank you, Jesus, for giving me the joy of anticipation.
