Thank you, Lord, for…

…air conditioning…

…refrigerators (take nothing for granted)…

…cold lemonade in ice-filled glasses…

air conditioning

…summer-times clothes that don’t take up much room in the washing machine (meaning I can skip a day or two and it won’t overwhelm me)…

…pool memberships…

…summer-time agendas that permit propping up one’s feet and drinking cold drinks…

…naturally cool basements…

…and, did I mention…air conditioning?

  1. Now if you were back in VA you’d be enjoying those storms and flooding AND the 100% temps!!!Keep cool in the air conditioning and as my boys would often say “don’t sweat the small stuff, Mom. we could lose electricity!”

  2. AMEN Sister! I held off as long as I could, but today, the AC is on. I grew up, as I suspect most people did, without air conditioning. (I’m in my 30’s). So I can’t actually believe how spoiled we all are these days. I thank God for Air Conditioning, just the same.

  3. Amen I say again!In the middle of the night I wake up and say, “Thank you God, for air conditioning.”

  4. We don’t use AC but Amen too!

  5. So last night we were hit with a huge storm. I was thanking God for the rain because we’ve been in drought. And I was trying to sleep amidst all the thunder and lightning. And then a nearby strike knocked power out and I had to peel myself off the ceiling. My German Shepherd was looking at me to do something to handle her sense of unrest. I couldn’t do a thing. So I took a large votive candle and went downstiars (the flashlight on the dresser was just too obvious to grab), and we spent some time there, because it was cooler. Because, of course, there was no AC. I actually laid awake for awhile, thinking of the hot, humid day ahead of us, promising to be one of the more uncomfortable of the year…and no AC. Thank God, our power came back on around 6 am. And the AC kicked in immediately. So thank God for rain and AC!

  6. Yeah, I don’t know how we managed without A/C as kids…although I do remember my mom having us nap in the basement on really hot days. Neighbors said we lose power a lot here – so far, we haven’t. God is being really nice to this pregnant lady! With my last baby – born at the end of June – it was HOT, but not as bad as it’s been recently, and the A/C unit broke. Maintenance was slow to respond (several days) and I was a very pregnant, hysterical lady on the phone demanding immediate service. I think if it had gone on any longer, I’d have started calling Generals or their wives looking for some higher help!
