Krabi Boats 8

I’ve never been so happy and thankful to see clouds in my entire life. This summer’s temperatures in Nakhon Si Thammarat city have averaged around 36-37 degrees Celsius without the humidity. There has also hardly been any clouds in sight or rain for over two months, until yesterday when we felt a few short ‘sprinkles’ (not enough to be called a drizzle) of rain.

However we are thankful even for the huge clouds which form a shielding barrier between the harsh sunlight that soaks into the concrete jungle of the city. It reduces the temperatures by one or two degrees and makes it much more bearable. Reminds me of the words found in Isaiah 4:5-6

New Living Translation (NLT)

5 Then the Lord will provide shade for Mount Zion
and all who assemble there.
He will provide a canopy of cloud during the day
and smoke and flaming fire at night,
covering the glorious land.
6 It will be a shelter from daytime heat
and a hiding place from storms and rain.

A wonderful reminder of some of His gentle mercies that we often take for granted each day.
