It’s summer, July, and in the Midwest heat and humidity have been here for a while.
The humidity magnifies how the body feels the heat somehow and makes it less tolerable. Sometimes people in this type of weather actually die from the heat.
We have a heat advisory again today, warning us be careful because of the extreme heat.
The temperature control mechanism in my brain does not work correctly, so I have to depend more on a temperate atmosphere to keep my temperature regulated. When I was a teenager, I used to get heat exhaustion at least once every summer. I eventually decided that I was going to do my best not to let that happen anymore. In order to best take care of the body God has given me to use in His service, I need to have air conditioning when the weather gets this hot.
Today I am thankful for air conditioning. I honestly don’t know if I would have survived this long if it were not for air conditioning.
I thank God for another day and for the electricity and housing needed to make air conditioning work the way it should!
What about you? Is it summer where you live? Are the temperatures there very hot? Do you live in a place with high humidity or is it more dry where you live? Do most people where you live have to use air conditioning in the summer to survive?
