My mind is blank. I don’t feel as if I have anything to say. Cherished?? Right now I would cherish some cooler weather…
I sat and ate a hot meal (I know, I know) in front of the news tonight. Watched stories of heatwaves and bush fires and lives lost. Somehow the heat we've been experiencing seemed nothing compared to the heatwaves 10 degrees hotter in other states.
My eagerness for this latest round of renovating to hurry up and finish already was stilled for a moment as I watched my countrymen’s homes burn. Fire fighters abandoning houses because there is nothing more they can do. I will not complain.
Lives lost. Devastation. I ache for their cherished ones. As the newsreel wraps up the weatherman reports how for a wet season it has been so pitifully dry. Only a few millimetres in the gauges when there should be so much more.
Rain. We need rain Lord. Please send the rain; bless this country we all cherish so much.
Now, your turn…
