Scripture of the Day: For this is what the high and lofty One says-- he who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite." — Isaiah 57:15

Imagine my surprise when I encountered this vehicle while driving to my office this morning!

Hot Weather!

The high temperature here yesterday was 111°. The weatherpeople had predicted a high of 105°. Today, the weatherpeople are forecasting a high of 112°. I dread that this means the high will be 118°! Yikes!
