Simple Joys Saturday

I always knew that God created me for "such a time as this...................."

The time of air conditioning of course! God never hears so much constant thankfulness from me than in the summer. Air conditioning is a gift from heaven and a blessing to those of us here in Georgia who are already anticipating fall before the first day of summer has even come!

And what could be better than the simple joy of air conditioning? Bare feet on a cold wood floor...that's what!
Slipping your HOT and TIRED feet out of your shoes or flip flops.....and walking across the cool floor is INSTANT relaxation and relief from the brutal outdoors. A simple joy...that I do not take for granted!
One more simple joy for us this weekend......
Driving up to Nashville and spending time with my husband, enjoying a swimming pool in the midst of a heat advisory....and enjoying a ride home the next day...just being together. It's a blessing and a joy!

Carrie - I agree about the air conditioning. Here in Texas,it's the same way (although I admit I was happy to see winter gone this year).

Thanks for visiting my blog! It's ofte the simple things in life that bring us the most joy.

Carrie, thank you for joining in here.... lovely to read your post and see your appreciation of A/C and coolness in the heat that some people take for granted these days.
I am away at the moment, just popped in to a wi-fi outlet, and look forward to getting to know you soon.
With love and blessings - Jan

You and Andy, freezing me out. I am currently wearing a SWEATSHIRT while sitting at the comp, just so Andy can be comfortable. I think my inner thermometer must be busted.
I am glad for air conditioning too, just not quite as cold as some people like it set!
