Yahweh’s Relief

The weather here in Arkansas has been brutal the last couple of weeks. Temperatures have been in the mid to upper ninety-degree Fahrenheit range with several one-hundreds thrown in for good measure. Anyone reading this outside of the United States that would be thirty-six degrees to thirty-seven. With high humidity added, the weather hasn’t a pretty sight at all.

A recent morning was another story altogether. After I finished my morning ritual of exercising, reading the paper, meditating, eating a little breakfast (not necessarily in that order), I decided to spend a little time on the back deck with my trusty Shi-Tzu (Ari). The weather was stark contrast to what we’ve been having. There was a light northerly wind blowing, visibly rustling the leaves on the tree line on the other side of the creek that runs behind our property. There was also a mixture of birds playfully riding the updrafts, making flying seem effortless. All seemed well in nature’s laboratory. Even the traffic noise from the expressway, about four miles away, was silent. I only heard the hush sounds of nature. It’s as if Yahweh was acutely aware that I needed a respite.

I’m old and blessed…hope you will be too.

    Yes indeed! Glad you are surviving in those conditions – it’s almost as hot here, but we have had some thunder storms to break it up now and again.

    The town where I live in New Mexico recently hit an all-time record high of 112. Today was 103. I am so thankful for our air conditioning!!

      I pray that it keeps working. Service calls for ac repairs here in Arkansas are stacking up like crazy.
