The In Between Time

This is the in-between time, summer in essence is abating, and autumn is well nigh.
I wait in expectancy for autumn to arrive.
Autumn in Texas is not a melodrama of beautiful colored fall foliage, and it will be a while before we start wearing sweaters and long sleeves.
Yet it will mean for us that we can say goodbye to temperatures of over 100 degrees, and hopefully even be finished with temperatures above 80.
This has been a long hot summer for Texas, and we are in a severe drought.
Where are you my readers? Has it been an unbearably hot and dry summer, or worse you feel in your spirit a parching dryness that cannot be quenched?

"O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!
I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.
I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.
Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.
But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.
They will die by the sword and become the food of jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God. All who trust in Him will praise Him, while liars will be silenced."
Psalm 63

In Eastern Shore Maryland it has been a rainy summer. Somewhat uncomfortable for humidity, but really good for the basil. We have to eat the tomatoes pretty quickly because there's a blight on tomatoes all over the east. Daily temperatures in the seventies this week ... a very welcome change. How nice not hearing the sound of fans and a/c. Just the wonderful peaceful sound of crickets. Just this afternoon I passed a dried out field of corn and it seems only yesterday I was looking to see if it was "knee high".
