It is hard to imagine that last year we survived without using our air conditioning because this year we have used it a lot, but at the same time I know I could do without it, so it isn’t that big of a deal to me.  I always find humor in people who complain in the winter that it is too cold and that they can’t wait for summer to come but when summer comes they think it is too hot and whine about the heat.  We all tend to feel drawn to comfortable weather AND lives, but are we meant to be comfortable all the time?

I think about the times that I have had hard times and how anxious I was or how upset I was.  I think about the times where I have felt happy and at peace, and usually it was due to my own ignorance.  There are people living in the heat without the ability to cool off in water or air conditioning at all.  I try to think about how tough they have it and realize that they are actually blessed to get through it and see that it is just the way life is, so they endure.  We are going to have hard times and need to face them and trust that God will get us through them.  As we trust in Him, He always provides and comes through, knowing what we need.  I like depending on Him when I don’t know what to do or when I feel a need to complain about things that are not worth complaining about at all.Sunshineinmylifetheyare1thumbSunshineinmylifetheyare2thumbSunshineinmylifetheyare6thumb Sunshineinmylifetheyare5thumb Sunshineinmylifetheyare3thumbSunshineinmylifetheyare4thumb[outfit details: Shoes – TOMS | Dress – hand-me-down from a friend | Bracelet – Simply Fair | Flower hair clip – Lila-jo]

  1. GREAT post! I agree with you. Especially in the USA, the lower class here is middle class somewhere else. The grass is always greener on the other side, and so we never get satisfied. It’s a really scary thought. Rob and his friend were talking about how this applies to porn and even to knowledge! We’re always seeking more and never satisfied. Of course, one is obviously more harmful (in our view) than the other but both make you not want to stop pursuing and pursuing. It doesn’t end, always restless. Sometimes I’m like that, and I need to slow down. It especially happens when I think I need to fix a situation. I need to remind myself that God is in control!

    Cute dress and headband! You look very pretty! Your sons are too cute, as always!

  2. I often hear people including myself sometimes complain about the heat! But in reality we have air condition and clean water which is quite different than how people live in other countries. Instead of complaining about how hot it is we really could be helping others who are less fortunate by not only praying for them but giving our time and money to help them. Thank you for reminding me how better my lot is in life and how God has really blessed me and my family!
