For many years we were in a drought and I really got used to it not raining. This year, it seems to rain all the time. It's really weird. To top it off, I have a dog who is afraid of thunder and storms. I feel so bad for her because she gets scared so much more often now. This afternoon I was listening to the storms roll in and seeing the sky get dark and realizing that I would once again have a scared little buddy. I thought about how God protects us and keeps us safe. He is our shelter in the storms of life. Isaiah 25:4 says, "You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm, and a shade from the heat."
During summer vacation, I have decided that it would be really good if I could have a checklist of things to do just like we sometimes give our kids. Here is mine so far: Create something Physical activity Sunshine Clean or declutter something Read or learn something new So, on Day 3 of summer, I decluttered my old t-shirts. Many of these shirts have sentimental value so I've hung on to them. But, I never wear plain t-shirts. I just don't like plain men's tshirts. On the other hand, I feel like I never have any casual tshirts to wear around the house. Instead of just throwing them out, I refashioned them. Leave me a comment on what else I should add to my daily summer list.
