“The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke open,
and the clouds drop down the dew.”
I can only think of two words that adequately describe the weather here in the deep south lately: sweltering heat. With daily temperatures in the upper 90’s and very little rain, I have found myself indoors most of the day. But, by 7 p.m., it cools just enough to enjoy eating in our garden! As you know by now, we find it hard to eat dinner inside with our love for the outdoors! Come on, take a seat…we invite you to have dinner with us on this mid-summer evening! And yes, we will provide the bug spray!
God’s beauty never ceases to amaze me. The detail that He has created is beyond words!
As the sun begins to set and the light starts to fade, the garden has a sweet ambiance!
The big brown truck delivered the umbrella on Monday. When Butch got home from the office, he unpacked and set it up. He was proud of himself because he had selected it and it was on sale! Tuesday night, we had a storm with very high winds! The umbrella was down, but with 50+ mph winds, we figured it didn’t stand much chance of survival! After the storm, with flashlight in hand, Butch goes out to survey the damage. The wind had blown the table on top of a chair with the umbrella still in place, which remarkably had protected it! Whew…close call!!
