The Lord is my keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand...

Psalms 121:5

My husband suggested that I do a self portrait in the shade today for the cool theme I thought I would take him up on it. Today has been the hottest day this month so far.

Prior to this we have been mostly getting rain and cold weather..The temperature soared up to 95 °F and I even had a hard time finding a cool spot in the shade. Drinking water helps in hot weather...A thunderstorm is predicted for tonight.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...We got the thunderstorm last night and it woke us up several times ...i think it struck something behind

    our house as it sounded very close but at least it has cooled off today. Richard, ..I love the stories of hope in the Guidepost stories and the fact it

    is fast reading.

    Not sure if that was meant as a compliment Kil Roy but since I happen to think Hillary Clinton is a very intelligent lady I'll accept it as a compliment:)
