For two months now the temperatures have been over 95° . This is so hard for me to deal with. The summer months here in Houston are sweltering . My kids have done many things and I'm proud of each of them . We have had a couple birthdays . We had a wonderful swim season. We even made a major purchase . Ideas are all around me and I miss blogging. To be honest though I find it incredibly difficult to think clearly when it is so hot all of the time .
I am sitting here preparing this at 12:15 AM we have just kicked out a slug that snuck in the back door . It is still 84°. No matter the time the air is humid and heavy . Some people love the hot climate I am just NOT one of those people . Some of my kids are. The older three 3 lifeguards in the heat 105° every day . I find it awful to even be at the pool right now because the water is warm and you're hot again before you even get out .
All of this to say that I am sorry I have not been more consistent . I will be updating and adding pictures from the past two months soon. I also ask you to save quick prayer for rain for our area . While most of the country are having floods we are in an extreme drought . It is very disturbing to drive down and see many trees brown . You see this is our third year of a drought . Now we have not had a consistent rain for over six months . Many of the trees are dying and as for hurricane were to hit our area there would be a lot of damage from those trees falling .
A Prayer For Rain
Almighty God, we are in need of rain.
We realize now, looking up into the clear, blue
sky above, what a marvel even the least drop of
rain really is. To think that so much water can
fall out of the sky, which now is empty and clear!
We place our trust in You. We are sure that You
know our needs, but You want us to ask You anyway,
to show You that we know we are dependent on You.
Look on our dry hills and fields, dear God, and
bless them with the living blessing of soft rain.
Then the land will rejoice and the rivers will sing
Your praises and the hearts of men will be glad.
God bless and I am sorry for the lack of posting. Thank you to a young friend for the little facebook push. Sarah, you know I love to read what you write as well.
What will I see here?
Take a peek into our life as a big family in Houston, TX. Welcome to the electronic journal for the Texas T family. This blog was created to share some moments of our life with you. Often having 11 children, homeschooling, and being incredibly active in our Catholic faith we are asked “How do you do it?” We invite you to look around, sign up as a follower, and peek into the answer to that question. Remember we are not a perfect family; but I won't post the bad stuff.
Thanks for visiting, Neen
