Just a Thought.......

Rev.DaveFischer Rev.DaveFischer Yes, I know, I know it’s been hot recently. Some folks have even been heard to say that it is “hotter than that lower place”. Never mind how they know, statistically they are wrong.

Here’s the truth. The Bible says Hades is a place of “fire and brimstone”. Brimstone melts at 444 degrees. We ain’t that hot yet!

*Other folks care less about the actual temperature and more about how to “beat the heat”. Suggestions abound, but here are several from, of course, teenagers.

*Duct tape ice packs under your arms when you are outside.

*Put your feet into ice cold watermelon halves and wear them as slippers at the pool.

*Turn a bucket of ice cream upside down on your head. You will be “deliciously cool” all afternoon.

Adults are not immune from going overboard in this regard. One man cut out the side of his car and installed a home air-conditioning unit run by a generator tied on his trunk. Another fella, red neck?, duct taped his fan to the ceiling over his TV, and yet another, stapled window screening together and slipped ice cubes inside, then put that contraption in front of his fan.

By now, you are probably thinking, “Poor Dave, this heat is driving him crazy.” If it is, my wife will not be surprised. She always said it was a short drive anyway.

Rev. David Fischer is interim Minister at First Christian Church in Lexington
