This has been one of the hottest weeks I can remember. There’s a new water park that the kids went to and seemed to really enjoy. I was disgusted to see all the places with large umbrellas were reserved leaving me with a dwindling shadowed spot on the concrete to sit on. The crowd seemed to really like the water slide but Gabby wouldn’t have any of it. Finally as my shadow dwindled completely it was time to leave. I noticed this door on the building as we left. I expect it’s talking about chlorine but wow, what the heck are they putting in the water? Getting home it was still so hot but that didn’t stop me from going out to watch the sun set. I happen to really love what I call a cotton candy sky. Other times the evening’s offer is more what I’d call a silhouette special and I like that too. Another style I love in sunsets is the ray effect (like my technical terms?). Looking at skies like this makes me feel a sense of peace . I know I’ve mentioned that before but I can’t say it enough. The biggest even we had this week was anything but peaceful. Looking out on my favorite view I saw what I knew wasn’t a cloud…a massive fire forced many evacuations and left a horrible mess for many families. Not surprising to see this considering that it’s been in the hundreds for several days and this with a red flag warning and high winds it was a recipe for disaster. It makes me have all the more compassion for those in Colorado. That said it’s good to appreciate what we have and pray for those that are struggling. God bless and keep you.
