Iced Tea Day!

It’s a depressingly dark and rainy morning as I stare out the window for a thought to get the day started, but then I remember that it is International Sweet Tea day!  Well it’s actually National Iced Tea day, but what good is tea when it’s not sweet? Anyway, on June 10, 1904 at the St Louis Worlds fair, it seems they purveyors of the fair claim they invented iced tea – thus creating this glorious day. However, upon further inspection, like this bit of history here, it can be understood that those in the South were serving sweet tea long before 1904!

Tea Choice!

No matter, just get out there and kick back and refresh yourself by enjoying some iced tea today, remember it is the gentleman’s drink.

Oh and speaking of being refreshed, maybe this will be iced tea to your spirit!

For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish. Jeremiah 31:25 ESV

Off Day

Today is an off day.  Its 106 degrees outside ( heat index),  its my off day from running this week, and it’s one of those days where I have a half dozen half baked thoughts, but nothing that is quite ready for a complete idea.  This is just one of those summer day’s when you just want to lay around and do nothing but ‘catch the cool’ as they say in the Bahamas.  It’s a day to just keep going, and just keep focused. No real new ideas except for getting another glass of sweet tea.

So stay cool and stay focused and refresh yourself in the Lord.

6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.

7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.

The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.  Psalms 19
