Spring?

                                                                 Antique postcard from Graphics Fairy.

According to Merriam-Webster, Indian Summer is “a period of warm or mild weather in late autumn or early winter”.

Is there a term for early seasons?  Here in North Texas, we have a lot of early springs (usually February), early summers (beginning in May), late summers (100+ temperatures lasting into early September) and mild winters with just a sprinkling of bad weather and temperatures below 20 degrees F.

The Hen Bit and dandelions are in bloom, there was a robin in our yard last week and today we have the air conditioner on.

It might as well be Spring.

Happy New Year, 2019

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

Lamentations 3:22-24 King James Version

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS
Words: Thomas O. Chisholm
Music: William M. Runyan

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

September

Ah! September.

What a relief in Texas. August is behind us and we have hopes of cooler weather before long.

Changing the rules

When the other side changes the rules, then they must also play by them.
