And we thank God for air conditioning

The summer is just moving right along in our house. The heat is taking its toll, though. With over 100ºF days, we just simply don’t venture outside unless it is before 9 am or after 7 pm.

I had a really wonderful day off from work yesterday. I didn’t go anywhere. The kids and I stayed home and they played while I did some much needed chores around the house.

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate cleaning bathrooms? I guess it would help if I did it more often than once a year.

Oh, I kid. I clean them at least twice a year whether they need it or not.

But overall the summer is going fine around here. I am just finding myself in a bit of a dry land, spiritually, though.

A friend and I had good intentions of doing a Bible study this summer and that has never really taken off, although I am still hopeful that it might. I’m also in a bad habit of going to bed late and then not waking up in time to do a quiet time devotional every single morning. And all of the other stuff that is going on in life and in my head is just starting to take a toll, just like the summer heat, and I am drying out.

So here I am at 7 am, having read Psalm 119:89-96 for my quiet time this morning and asking that the Lord continue to sustain me as he sustains the earth and causes it to endure (vs. 90). I know He will and I know that I will come out of this season of dryness “like a well-watered garden and like a spring whose waters never fail” (Isaiah 58:11).

And speaking of sun-scorched land (Isaiah 58:11), you should look out my window right now.

Amen on cleaning the bathrooms, sister. Tried to tackle my bathtub grime last week and UGH! what a chore.
