Hello, Everyone,

One of the greatest blessings that we receive from God here in the Pacific Northwest is cool mornings and evenings during the summer months. When the sun goes down in the evening, the air miraculously becomes cooler and provides soothing comfort as you open the windows or doors. Of course this blessing has an even greater impact on those of us who do not have AC. Laying down to sleep, the cool air drifting in through the bedroom window seems like the hand of God caressing your tired head as you gratefully slip into sleep. In the morning, the air is invigoratingly cool, sweet and calm and it blows gently into rooms that still  hold the stuffiness of the sweltering day before.

So, as the “dog days of summer” progress, we can be so grateful that we live among tall evergreens, blue-green bodies of water, snow-capped mountains, meadows filled with brightly colored mountain flowers, AND our days and nights provide natural air conditioning. GOD IS GOOD! ALL THE TIME!

Hope August brings all of you many relaxing days of family enjoyment, travel, stay-cations, hiking, camping, and just lazing around with a good book and a tall glass of lemonade. Thanks to all of you because you so faithfully and diligently agree to serve during this busy vacation month.

God’s richest blessing and peace to you all,

Linnea
