We used to hang wet towels over the window openings so that whatever breezes there were would be cooled. We kept all the shades drawn to try to keep the house cooler. Sometimes, when the heat was really bad, we would put our feet into a basin or pan on the floor and then raise our feet toward the fan... We would not cook -- we ate cold suppers of veggies and cold cuts to keep the house cool.

Mary, so true, we did the same thing. I am so thankful that we don't have to go through what our ancestors went through. I know that God is in control and as long as my air conditioner works I will be happy. If God promises to take care of the little sparrows, I know He will care for us.
