Unusual Weather

autumn leaves2


This was the image I have been imagining for the last few days.  The weather here in Northeast Indiana has been unusually cool for July.  It reached 51 degrees (Fahrenheit) either last night or the night before.  However, the fall-like temperatures were a welcome relief from the 80s and 90s.  The windows could be opened, and the a/c could get a rest (along with my pocketbook!).  How is the weather where you live?

I love fall, but I am not quite ready for it yet.  I still long for some nice sunny days where I can just sit outside and soak in the sun’s rays.  Do you like to do that?  I know that just getting some sunshine makes me feel much better in general.

I hoping that these pleasant temps last through the weekend because I am anticipating going to the Indiana State Fair and Holiday World.  Cows, cotton candy, and coasters!  🙂   I went to the Fair last year and had a lot of fun.  It is just refreshing to do something so “wholesome.”

Where are some places you like to frequent this time of year?

Are we still the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Flag flying at the Old Fort in Fort Wayne, IN

When I see our American flag flying, I sometimes get a lump in my throat. I think about all that our nation has gone through in 237 years. It is amazing to me that we are still a nation. We have gone through many wars, both foreign and domestic, yet here we stand–the United States of America.

In my 37 years of life, I have seen a lot. However, the last few years have me worried. I often wonder how much longer our nation will continue to stand. Will we last another 237 years? There is so much anger, bitterness, hatred, division, deceit, and outright evil going on in this nation and our world right now. All I can ask is that America seek God and ask Him to once again bless our nation and forgive us of our sins.

What are some of your thoughts on this nation we call the United States of America? Are you optimistic, pessimistic, or somewhere in-between about our future?
