Somewhere in the World ...

... at any given moment, it's morning. And you know why I'm filled with fresh appreciation for that fact? Because even the most promising of days can fall flat, especially when you're all either wilting or hibernating from the soaring temps and humidity. We've all been feeling tiiiiired lately (I actually lay on the couch and took a 30-minute nap this afternoon!). In fact, at this very moment, despite my desire to blog about, for example, how much we're enjoying having our distant-cousins-by-marriage move to town from California and buy a house with a pool and be really hospitable and fun and just generally all-around cool, I am approaching brain-death. But Lamentation 3:22 reminds me: "Jehovah's lovingkindesses indeed never cease/For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy Faithfulness." So sure, it's great to enjoy His mercies/compassions in the morning, but hey, when it's 3:00 in the afternoon here in Texas, it's morning in, say, New Zealand, right?

Let's see, 10:30 here ... sun's coming up in Greece, right? Thank You, Lord, for Your tender mercies! (And I'd say it in Greek if I could ...)

Way to keep perspective Hannah! You can come visit us here on the sunny east coast just as soon as our air conditioner goes kaput again, OK? Hehe!

His mercies are new every morning :) Thank you for the reminder.
