Officially Done With Summer

I’m officially done with summer. The first day of fall was Thursday, September 22 and I’m finished with the season of high heat and oppressive humidity.

It Isn’t Really That Bad

Although the days can routinely hit triple digit temperatures with humidity in the high 90’s, still, it isn’t really that bad. Just do the following:

6-ways-to-beat-the-heat

  1. Stay indoors.
  2. Set the AC as low as you can afford to pay.
  3. Air condition your garage so your car stays cool.
  4. Stay indoors. 
  5. Think cool thoughts.
  6. Don’t go outside.

See, it that so hard?

My Top Five Summer Issues

  1. Can’t breath in the heavy, damp air.
  2. Sweating the moment I walk outside.
  3. The love affair mosquitoes have with Houston.
  4. The swamp like environment from torrential rain storms.
  5. Did I mention the heat and humidity?

There Are Some Advantages

  1. If you need a steam bath, just sit on the back porch.
  2. The grass, shrubs, and trees don’t typically need much watering.
  3. You won’t need a jacket.
  4. From April to November you won’t ever shiver.
  5. Did I mention the steam bath?

Give Thanks In All Circumstances

That’s a phrase from the apostle Paul. He wanted believers to understand that regardless of the circumstances, there was always something to be thankful for. He was right, there is, even in the hottest days of summer.

So: “Good Morning Holy Spirit”

“Thank you for indwelling me and for keeping me connected to the Father. Please help me today with your fruit of joy, for there is joy in believing, and there is joy in Jesus our Messiah, Amen.”

Still….

I’m officially done with summer.

Shalom
