Do you know how hard it is to be a typical white girl in the summertime?
If you’re a sister in the typical white girl club, you know the struggles. “I really can’t stay in the sun too long I’ll burn.” *two seconds in the sun* “OMG – I can’t even. Too hot. I’m going back inside.” *reads book about summer time activities* “Aw, I want to do that.” *remembers getting burned at age 12*
It’s a vicious cycle.
To make matters worse, I’m that girl who can’t seem to drink enough water. Staying hydrated in the heat is key. Fact of the matter is… I’ve lost the keys to summer living.
I’m just going to have to believe that God allows me to be pale for a reason. He has given me the skin that’s more peachy salmon color than just white for a reason. He made me with blue eyes to really make me not want to be in the sun, therefore… I can’t even even further. God also put me in this city, state, country for a reason – all unknown to me – because He knows what’s best for me.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.Pslam 139:13
“…For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”Jeremiah 29:11
God knew I would face tanning trials while also feeling the glare of the sun – especially when my parents named me SUMMER (I was born in the middle of winter though *crying emoji*)
I like how God knows how many hairs I have on my head… when He’s also the one who probably makes them fall out BECAUSE I CAN’T EVEN WITH THE HEAT HE BRINGS UPON THE MID-AMERICA STATES.
The very hairs on your head are all numbered.Matthew 10:30
Summer is just about over… right? Stay cool 🙂
