I hate to wish a season away, but, I’m to the conclusion that humidity is a taste of hell on earth. Drips of perspiration dropped on the dewy landscape as I plodded along my path this morning. One word says it all, “ugh.”
Still, I don’t want to wish time away dreaming of another day on the calendar, even if it happens to be with a lower heat index.
Same with seasons of hard; while I don’t desire them, I don’t want to wish the time away either. Because truth is, in the hard, I’ve experience a plethora of joy, which makes seasons of difficulty worthwhile–
Laying around watching romantic comedies
Reading, reading, reading
The gentle rock of the hammock to birds singing above in the leaves
Hands in dirt pulling weeds and planting seedlings
Hugs, hugs, hugs
Family from afar together again around the kitchen table
Competition from endless card games
God’s comfort in the dark of night
His peace enveloping me like a blanket when the chill of anxiety overwhelms
Times when sadness draws a closer sense of intimacy with loved ones, and my God.
