The Augustness of August—Part III

Where I live in Pennsylvania, the weather in late August begins to cool and I spend time out on my back porch. It’s a large screened-in porch with both an eating and sitting area. I love those days when I can spend the whole day out there. There’s such peace. This photo was taken four years ago. The aftermath of a birthday party. Unlike the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer. @donnalhsmith #AugustnessofAugust #NatKingCole #LazyHazyCrazyDaysofSummer






Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you’re set
And on the beach you’ll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get ’em wet

Don’t hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic moon it seems
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin’
You’ll see more kissin’ (whistling) in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You’ll wish that summer could always be here

Some people would say, “Those were the days.” But you know what? I kinda like these days. The days we’re living in now. Just think back, those of you who are over forty. There weren’t cell phones, Internet, hybrid cars, digital everything, personal computers, or home videos in 1980 and before. Except if you took 8mm home movies and showed them on a projector (not the kind we have today).

We put film in our cameras, we talked on the telephone (some of us even had party lines for awhile until telephone companies brought the cost of having a private line down to affordability for everyone.

How things have changed. But God never changes. He is always grand, always majestic. His nature and who He is never changes. I’m so thankful for that—because we live now in a constantly changing world. It’s nice to take the time to relax, to refresh, to regroup, and revive ourselves by taking a look back so we can move forward in all God has for us. @donnalhsmith #AugustnessofAugust #NatKingCole #LazyHazyCrazyDaysofSummer

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
