The trip to Dallas was a hot one yesterday. Temps were up at 107 degrees again.  I made my favorite art supply store, Asel Art, and we made the Doc appts and had lunch with my Mom and Terry's Dad... quickly dashed through Whole Foods Market just off Greenville... and headed back across the great waters.

Just outside Greenville there was a small storm and rain on the windshield for about 5 minutes.  Temps dropped to 95 and bounced right back up to 106 when it stopped.

What should we do in life when the heat is on and the pressure feels like too much, or everything seems to be going in the wrong direction?  Patience has to be the answer because the one thing I know we can count on is change. God continues to work in our lives even when we feel stagnant. We hurry to get ahead and He is working on His time not ours. The more anxious we are about things the more miserable we are.  Do you like being miserable?  Heck I don't.

So I decided to stay in the cool more until this heat wave breaks and focus on other things.  If you are mired down by something, let it go and MAKE yourself focus on something else.  You have to step back to gain your perspective and while you are doing that, things will change.

“When I said, "My foot is slipping," your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”- Psalm 94:18-19
