The PNW heat wave continues with Seattle beating its old record yesterday and Portland not quite tying theirs. Ugh. The joy (and pain) of high humidity and really hot temperatures…. makes me have a new found empathy for those who live in areas that 'enjoy' such weather all summer long; also makes me--a delicate PNW’er--look forward to soon being again in our more normal 70-80’s summer temperature range. Really soon I hope:)
But, even with the less then comfortable weather conditions, I am reminded that this is--indeed--a day the Lord has made--and I will CHOOSE to rejoice and be glad for it for that is what He wants me to do. And honestly, with all the blessings He sends my way, how can I not be filled with gladness?
Blessings from the somewhat cooler PNW,
“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity…Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.“
Psalms 118:24-25, 28-29 KJV
