this may seem backwards to many here - but having lived in the tropics for the past few years - where it always feels like a summer day in the 90s and humidity to match - i can hardly wait for Autumn in the mid-western U.S. - yup, we are heading "home" for a few months. i get to wear a jacket or sweater or sweats again!!! sleep with a blanket - without air conditioning! see my breath! etc. OK - i'll shut up before somebody threatens my life or well-being.
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
