The weather here in Charlotte has seemed colder and more rainy this season for some reason. Maybe I just notice it more because I am so ready for spring and summer weather.
My spirits are better when the sun is shining. I decided that I definitely could not live in Seattle.
But this morning there’s something else I realized. Without the rain, the pear trees wouldn’t be in bloom right now with their beautiful white flowers. The grass would stay brown and dry. Without the rain, we wouldn’t be able to see beautiful rainbows.
And so it is with our lives; without the rain, we wouldn’t recognize the victories we’ve overcome. Without the rain we wouldn’t appreciate the blessings that have been given to us.
Thankyou Lord for the rain. Help me see through the grey and to see your Son shining through in my life and in the life of those around me.
