Summer Heat

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Last week, my Tuesday's To Do was to be the virtuous buyer of TP. My husband actually beat me to that task, but I did manage to tackle the long list of household chores which needed to be done after our mini-vacation.

Hooray for folded laundry and a re-stocked refrigerator!

Okay, no one cheered for me. And I've got to do those things again this week. But that's part of being The Mom. Right?


This week, we are examining Psalm 19 as a theme for the summer. The first six verses celebrate God's creation. The summer sun, arcing across the sky, is an example of God's reliable love. Nothing is hidden from its heat.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.

What do we do with those words?

I see them as motivation for me, The Mom, to get outside with my kids this summer and help them listen to the language of the skies.

Tomorrow, we will explore some ways to do that.
