What can you say? It’s just plain hot in our part of the world right now. I guess most are wondering if we will ever see another drop of precipitation. Is it ever going to rain? Considering our propensity to complain no matter what the weather conditions, there are two lessons to learn. First, we often have to wait a long time for the things we enjoy most in life. Second, waiting matures us and creates a greater sense of appreciation and value for the blessings of life.

So, as you pray for our dry parched land to receive those sweet drops of liquid refreshment from heaven and cool off a bit, thank God for what you do have rather than complaining about what you don’t have. And as you wait during these dog-days of summer, relax and enjoy some of my favorite t-shirt one-liners.

Change is inevitable except for a vending machine.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy — other times I let her sleep.

Women who aspire to be equal with men lack ambition.

Ever stop to think and forget to start again?

It is as bad as you think and they ARE out to get you.

The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

Warning: Dates in calendar are closer than they appear.

We have enough youth — how about a fountain of smart?

If you ain’t the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

Notice: Anyone driving slower than me is a moron and anyone driving faster is an idiot.

If you don’t like the way I drive, stay off of the sidewalk!

Be nice to your kids — they’ll choose your nursing home.

I can only please one person per day — today is not your day and tomorrow is not looking so good either.

So, there you go some matters to ponder while waiting on the weather to change. Ah! Yes, those lazy hazy crazy days of summer. For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1 ESV)
