The Dog Days of Summer
The phrase dog days refers to the sultry days of summer. In the Northern Hemisphere, the dog days of summer are most commonly experienced in the months of July and August, which typically observe the warmest summer temperatures.
During July, when there isn't much rain, the grass often loses it's greenness. Some flowers are abundant in July, because they strive on the heat. Insects are abundant as well - life is striving in July! And, despite the relaxed mode we all tend to engage in during these summer months, as Christians we should be striving to find a deeper relationship with our Savior.
We can still slow down and watch the grass grow. That, in fact, is the perfect way to appreciate God's "green thumb" and find a quiet time to listen for His Spirit moving through your heart and mind for a peaceful soul.
