Summer has arrived. I think I am finally getting adjusted to Summer in Hollister. I have to remember to grab a sweater before I leave the house. Especially if I will not be home before around 4:00 in the afternoon. It gets chilly. For instance, the weather forecast for today is, “A mix of clouds and sun this morning with more sunshine this afternoon. High 76F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.” High 76! Tomorrow is to be, “partly cloudy. High 74F. Wind W at 10 to 20 mph. and Tomorrow Night: A few clouds. Low 47F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph.” Have you ever heard of such a thing in the summer? That WNW wind is straight off of the Monterey Bay and it’s cold. lol Some people think that our weather here in Hollister is like the San Joaquin Valley. Not so! Our summers are mostly like I described above. The best time for warm weather here is September—–November. That’s when it’s best in Monterey and Carmel too. It’s nice and warm then. I can get to warm/hot weather very shortly if I so desire. Just a few miles (12) into Gilroy, today it will be 80F. If I go over Pacheco Pass to the east in Los Banos (28 miles) it will be 92F. However, if you ever head this way (Monterey Bay Area) in the summer be sure and bring you a light jacket or sweater or you will be cold. I hope you all enjoy your summer vacations. Have a great one.

Today was an incredible day of Faith. My husband preached a message entitled, “The Eyes of Faith”. WOW! As he preached, it was if you could see the “lights” go on in people’s head. “Don’t look at the circumstances around you, but instead, lift up your eyes and see through the eyes of faith. This is not a escapest mentality. It is only learning how to see things as Jesus sees them.” I saw men receive blessings today like I haven’t seen in a long time. I saw one man fall to his knees and worship and worship. Another was shaken under the power of the Holy Ghost. I watched as 3 men began to pray for one another with their hands on each other’s shoulders and then watched as they began to dance. They danced and danced until I thought surely they can’t dance anymore, but they did. It was awesome. I watched as fathers prayed for sons and daughters and vice versa and how the power of God touched them. One of the most precious sights for me today was watching my natural children (grown now), as God moved in their lives. Both of them with hands upraised and tears streaming down their faces in praise and worship to a God that never fails. What better father’s day present could there be then for this kind of out pouring on God’s children. God, our heavenly father visited us today in a mighty way. There is strenghth in this kind of atmosphere. God is GREAT and He is GREATLY to BE PRAISED!
