The heat has robbed me of every ounce of energy!! I was sitting motionless in my easy chair; no TV. “Get up Lorraine; do something!” To my credit, I accomplished numerous tasks before I “wilted.” Dozen of things await my time and energy but “too hot and tired.” The calendar hasn’t identified “Summer” yet–this is late Spring. (Poor grammar in that last sentence but you get the message?) I’m not complaining because I have my home; I am “high and dry.” So many families living near rivers. in “middle America,” have been flooded and reports indicate the rivers have not “crested.” ~~ TV news full of tragic weather news plus the mass shooting in Virginia Beach. Here in Houston, Texas, vicinity a four-year-old girl’s body returned from Arkansaw where she was dumped along the highway. Dumped like garbage along the highway near Hope, Arkansas. Why are we experiencing so much violence? I turn to the scriptures for consolation and “hope.” Here is one of many:
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
