August, with its masses of spent blooms,
August, with its humidity and cloudless skies,
August, with days too hot to relish,
August, torrid and dry in the blazing sun,
And the locusts in brazen chorus, cry
Like stricken things, and the ring-dove’s note
Sobs on in the distance rim.
~Excerpt from a poem by Hamlin Garland
I(God) cared for you in the wilderness, in the land of the burning heat. ~Hosea 13:5 ✝
Thank you, Lord, that the seasons are ever-changing and that you always care for us!
