Some people love the sun. I have a couple of relatives who crave it. These people lay in the sun for hours. They want a tan. Ugh. Skin cancer is a looming problem for them, but they love the heat and don't mind the risk.
A little sun goes a long way with me. Say thirty seconds, and then I'm ready for the cool indoors.

You'll never find me lying on a beach.
Now to an analogy.
Hubby and I face heated challenges these days. No, it's not the weather, it's life.
This week, ten years ago, Craig Biggio set a record at bats with three thousand hits. Wow! Has it been ten years? I remember those days well. They were happy, carefree days for hubby and me.
But the sun is hotter for us these days, and it's not climate change. God has a way of presenting problems that cause heat and turmoil.
I thanked God this morning for the ones He's allowed. Nooooo! Truthfully, I want them gone, but I also know they are here for a purpose. I fight anger and frustration over them, and I'm clueless as to the reason these unwanted opportunities visit us, but I thank him. He also knows my heart. He understands I don't care for heat and sun. He sees my difficulties.
I'm hoping I can make it through this fiery test without getting burned. Shadrack, Meshack, and Abendego were in a furnace and they survived. You'll find them in the book of Daniel, chapter three.
How about you? Are you in a place you don't want to be today?
Remember, God can go with us through the rain or sun. He created both.
