The Heat Is On!!!!!!!!

No, not summer reruns, although they do seem to be now. I am talking temp here. Heat index exceeding 100 is common and I have to wonder if it was the same back when I was young (as in under 21). I know we had hot days, but no one was tracking heat indecies back then. If it was over 90 you stayed in the shade. Or the creek. Or the bayou.  Now the bayou is sucked dry for the cane and I don't know if you can even get to the creeks anymore. Up around Loyd Bridge you have to wrestle with the gators to get wet and Cocodrie is just as bad. The rivers are falling now as the flood is apparently over judging by the amount of news coverage it is getting. Making getting fish for the 4th a chore this year. But I'll get some from somewhere.

Things are ever what they seem, if you know the truth.

What does that mean? It means what you see is what you get, if you pay attention to what you see and think about it as you perceive. At least, that seems to be what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle believed. If you don't get it, read the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. You will......

Things happen for a reason....

Unfortunately, I do not always perceive the reason. That is both good and bad, good that I do not think I am smarter than God, bad that I sometimes forget that. Sometimes the reason is plainly before me, which is usually the best place to hide something from me. Sometimes the reason is obscured by the murkiness of my mind, and sometimes but the hand of the evil one. Through it all I have found that I have a firm belief that God knows more and better than I so I choose to leave it to Him. Even when I don't get the reason, I feel and believe that He knows best and the Spirit guides me through the swamplands of life to the lake brimming with perch.

I really hope to join up with Daddy there some day.
