It's getting hotter!


So it's summer. It's hot. It's dry. And I find myself complaining about the heat. Again. It happens every year. In the winter I complain about the snow. It's beautiful but I don't like to drive in it. I also spend most of the winter being cold. I wear socks to bed, I wear sweatshirts and wrap up in blankets. You would think that when cold is gone, I would be happy, but no - I complain about the heat and humidity. I know I am spoiled. I read a blog by a missionary nurse in Haiti and I don't think the people there complain too much about the heat. They have other things to worry about - like just staying alive and keeping their families fed. So this week, I am going to make a conscious effort not to complain. This week I want to enjoy God's creation. He has created an absolutely beautiful world for us to live in and I don't think it gives him any glory when I complain about things that are pretty small in the whole realm of things. I challenge anyone reading this to take a look outside and thank God for his creation, even with heat and humidity!

If you want to think a little more about snow, visit this site. You can make your own snowflake. The best part is, when you do this on the computer and you make a wrong cut, you just have to hit the undo button. Have fun.

OK-OK-OK.!!!
I know I complain about the heat and you're right it doesn't give God glory- His creation is beautiful. I don't complain in the winter though!!! I'll try to not complain too bad this week- I can guarantee you though that I won't make it all summer without complaining- I just HATE heat!!

I know... I shouldn't be complaining. I really don't complain too much about the heat unless it gets super humid.

I have decided to make an effort to quit complaining though - I was just thinking about how it says in James that out of the same mouth we praise God with, we complain and curse with. I don't want my mouth to be like that.
Thanks for the reminder!
