Cool!

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries lately, you'll know that I've been enduring the heat, both at home, and in my vehicle, because neither's air-conditioning has been working.

Believe me, it's been hot!  Of course, if you live anywhere near me, you'll know that we all have been doing our best to deal with the heat.

How hot has it been?  It's been consistently in the 90-106F/32-41C range.  Hot!  At least for us, here in Canada!

Something I've found to be rather humerous has been happening, lately.  It has to do with the weather.  Well, at least weather reporting.

Originally, I thought about posting a pic of a page showing an example of what I will be referring to, but after giving it some thought, I decided I would not do this.

Not because it isn't relevant, because it certainly is.  However, it would show anyone reading this entry the name of the weather site where I found this strange phenomena.

I'm referring to the fact that not just this site, but others as well, have been forecasting temperatures and posting them or advertising them.  Okay, this sounds normal.

But, what isn't normal, at least in my experience, is that the actual temperatures are being quoted much higher than what is being forecast.

To give you an example, today about 11:06 a.m., I printed out a page, showing the high temperature of the day to be 92F... but, with the humidity factored in, the site says it will feel like 99F.  The high for the day that I just quoted wasn't yet due to be until between 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. and since the forcasted temperature of 90F was due to arrive around 12:00 p.m. (noon), anyone reading this, would assume that even the quoted 90F hadn't yet been reached. 

However, the right now temperature reading shown on this page was 97F, feeling like 105F (due to humidity)!

In case you've missed my point, I'll ask a question.  How can the right now temperature be quoted at 97F, when the high temperature for the day, was being forecasted at 92F? 

How could this be quoted correctly, when the right now temp is greater than the high forecasted for the day?

Today, wasn't the first time I've seen and/or heard this.  It's actually been happening regularly, lately.  Everyone seems to be forecasting temperatures lower than what we've actually been receiving!

Well, at least I'm happy to say that I am now able to feel cool, while driving!

Yesterday, I took my van to a mechanic who not only did an oil change and replace my windshield wipers, but was able to get my air-conditioning working!  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!

Ah, it felt so good to be able to drive home, feeling considerably cooler than I did on my journey to the repair shop. 

Speaking about cool, something really cool happened to me, recently.  Something that I believe I have not yet mentioned.

A while ago, I received a message asking me to call one of the Boston Pizza locations, here in my area. Being busy at the time, I didn't immediately call. In fact, when I remembered to contact them, I happened to be driving by.

I'm sure you guessed, that I dropped in. Showing the message to the greeter, she went and got the manager. He looked at the message and congratulated me on my card being drawn for a free lunch!

A free lunch! Haven't we always heard there is no such thing as a free lunch? Well, I guess this proved that thought, wrong. Much to my joy!

Cool, wouldn't you say?!

While these things might surprise me, and may possibly even surprise you, nothing surprises God.  There are many passages in His Word, the Bible that confirm this.

1 John 3:20, is one of them, "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things."

Yes, He is omniscient.  He knows all things.  Nothing can be kept hidden from God.

Personally, I am grateful for this!  I never have to worry about Him not knowing truth of every circumstance in my life.  And, in yours too, my friend.  Hallelujah!


Until next time...
