Happy Father's Day to Me

Yesterday was a wonderful day for me. I went and got the entire family biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Will and Marilyn gave me a new iPod Nano for my Father's Day gift. It will hold literally 10x the number of songs my old classic did, so I can actually keep all my music in one place now. And finally the three of us had an amazing dinner at Bahama Breeze, topped off by a decadent piece of key lime pie. It was a great day, and spending so much of it with my son Will was a true blessing. Everything was was just splendid...UNTIL...

We got back from dinner and our AC had quit working. It was over 80 degrees in the house. Ceiling fans and opened windows helped some last night, but living in Florida with no AC in June is just not a good idea if you have a choice. I barely slept. So if you encounter a member of the Jones family today and we seem a little cranky, it may be from lack of sleep. Or it may be that the repairman hasn't shown up yet. In any case, prayers are appreciated. A hot, sweaty Monday is not the best start to a week. I guess it just goes to show me that I should always treasure the blessings, because you just never know what trials wait around the corner.  I hope your day is MUCH cooler than mine!  Be well, my friends!

Because of Jesus,

  2. Oh I feel your pain. My great grandparents who lived in Plant City never had AC. We spent a week with them every summer. I still remember how miserably hot it was.

    Same thing happened to us last night/today. A repairman has visited, but I'm not convinced it is working even now. It's not Florida, but NC can get pretty nasty too.
