Heat of summer

For the last 4 weeks, the temps have sitting in the 90's & 100's - way too hot! The heat of summertime reminds me of  life when the test & trials & fires gets turned up and you wonder if you can take that heat - but I love the way God gives usreminders in the flowering Myrtle Crepe trees. In the middle of summer - the hottest time of year - they bloom with brilliant colors in hues of pinks, purples & white.

Ours began to bloom recently - a simple reminder that with Him there is beauty to be found in our hottest days! We can trust Him to bring us through the tough hot times in living color.

Looking for new moments to enjoy,

I love the thoughts you share, Margie! It seems like I'm always learning about trusting him more. :)

It's the middle of September, and we still have temps in the high, high 90's.

Glad you have that beautiful crepe myrtle to provide a little bit of shade.

Sweet dreams.
