Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Today is a dark, dreary, dull and damp day in my neck of the woods. And it’s cold, The meteorologist even called for snow in the higher elevations. The squirrels have taken shelter among the trees, but the birds seem to take pleasure in this day. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that their food becomes a bit easier to acquire. In spite of the kind of weather we experience, someone or something will benefit. It’s always for our good.
Usually when I write in my journal, I thank the Lord for a new day, but this time, I decided instead to begin with thanks for life. Both are good things to be thankful for, but it occurred to me that I hesitated to be thankful for this day because of the weather. My mood quickly become a reflection of the weather and gratefulness was far from me. But as I wrote, I realized I was ready to give up on the entire day because of the weather; talk about throwing the baby with the bath water’ (who came up with this saying anyway? It’s terrible!)
Anyway, as I was saying, our God remains faithful. He reminded me that it’s barely 7:00 in the morning and here I am already at the end of the day. Life has yet to be lived on this day and I’ve allowed the weather to dictate whether or not I will have a good day. Thankfully, the Lord remains faithful. Today is a good day because the Lord is faithful, and the Lord is good.
On my recent walk I came across some art work in my neighbourhood.
