I know it's not summer yet, but at 11 a.m. today it was 90 degrees with 29 percent humidity. That is perfect to me. 'This is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.' Yes it's easier for me to quote and sing this verse on days where I can feel my extremities and feel the sun against my skin.
Even though we have four seasons in the year [and you know my favorite], God really wants us to take it one day at a time. ''Moses wrote: “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 ). Notice how Jesus said our needs would be met: “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11 ). Notice what God says about how He’ll give us the strength we need: “Your strength will equal your days” (Deuteronomy 33:25 ). When you run ahead to what may happen the next day or next week or next month, you’re running ahead of your supply lines, because God gives the strength you need in 24-hour increments.''

The seasons of the year remind us that, whatever it is, this too shall pass, so if summer is not your favorite time then you just have to wait it out. 'On the one hand it's a sobering reminder that nothing lasts forever; but it's also encouraging to know that difficult times will eventually but inevitably be followed by times of peace. God is in control of it all.'
Who's ready for summer? Me, who dreams of summers that last forever.
