You know you're tired when you can't even blog. You know you're old when kids are coming home from youth conference all excited and you are just glad you didn't have to go. And you know it's hot when the forecasters predict a cool down into the low 90s.
Life is relative and it takes perspective to see the wisdom of Ecclesiastes that there is a time for everything. It takes the faith of saints to face the reality that "all is vanity" (Eccles. 12) and say "Thanks be to God!"
