The Heat

Definition Of A Heat Wave - Three or more consecutive days with temperatures at least 90.

So much for three or more. We are in the middle of a two week heat wave. Today it was 100. Days when the curtains are kept closed, and you carry a water bottle everywhere. Mind you, I am not complaining. It is still better than winter! I snapped this sunset a few days ago. In an air conditioned car.

“You know that as soon as the sun rises, pouring down its scorching heat, the flower withers.”

James 1

Cats Who Made Bad Choices

I saw these on Facebook and just HAD to post it! I hope I have started your weekend with a laugh.

“My choice is you, God, first and only. And now I find I’m your choice!” 

Psalm 16

The Tigers

The Tiger Lilies are blooming now! I can spot them from a distance because they grow upside down. And I am in a picture; can you find me?

There is a legend that says a hermit once saved the life of a wounded tiger. In the afterlife, the tiger became a Tiger Lily, and he spread his flowers everywhere searching for the hermit, who had died. He followed him even after death.

Tiger, tiger burning bright
In the forests of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
William Blake

The Storm

This evening we watched the lightening from a storm in the distance. I was hoping for a sunset, but instead the sun shone on the storm clouds across from it.

And you all know what happens after a storm!

“I looked: I saw an immense dust storm come from the north, an immense cloud with lightning flashing from it, a huge ball of fire glowing like bronze.” 
Ezekiel 1
