Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #128 Sizzle…

Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 # 128


It is hot, let me tell you, when it is cooler in Key West than Indiana in July  we had better think seriously about global climate change. Good grief – if I had an egg I’d try to fry it on the sidewalk. There was a church in town that just had on its sign, “If you think it’s hot here…” We get the point. In many countries the summer holiday is a month long and falls quite often in July. A month, can you imagine having a whole month off for holiday. Sounds inviting – but then I love to work – that’s a dilema.

So how do we cope with the heat, humidity, and heath risks of this summer? Well check on children and the elderly – as we are told. Encourage your church to offer itself as a cooling center. Go visit the library, walk around the almost vacant mall (they probably still have the air conditioning on), put the lawn chair out in the lawn, sit down, and turn on the old sprinkler. Maybe make a donation to a hunger program, local food pantry, homeless shelter, or a soup kitchen – and as you do give thanks that you can help in a small way during a very hot summer for a lot of people. Donate those fans in your basement to people who could really use them. There are a lot of cool things to do.

I may adopt the Spanish version of siesta during these hot days and just move a little less in the afternoon. I think of Psalm 23:2 where the writer says, “He leads me beside still waters…” I’m thinking of a cool mountain stream right now and soft puffy clouds…sorry dozing off….more later

Be Well
