Rejoice

Okay, I admit it, I am a creature moved by the weather!

It is in the low sixties today and could possibly break a record. I feel ecstatic, elated, I feel deliriously happy!!! Was it only a few days ago, that I was in the "depths of despair" (Anne Shirley).

Give me sunshine and a balmy day and I am yours.

It is so funny, because when I am like this I start quoting scriptures.

This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it...Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice...I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise will continually be in my mouth.

Why can't I do what I quote? Rejoice everyday, no matter what. Rejoice always, no matter what. Bless the Lord at all times, no matter what.

I am fickle and I am faithless at times, but today I am grateful.

Thank you Lord for your love and patience and for the wonderful sunshine.

Sunny days make everything better. The weather here can be so gloomy for days and days and days in a row. It has made me so much more grateful for the sunshine and I really do think of it as a gift. God seems to know when I can't take one more gray day and He'll send a really beautiful one along : )

Amen! I wore short sleeves and Hurachi's (sp?) without socks yesterday afternoon as I was out running errands. I'm like you, though, and have made an effort to rejoice, no matter what. Donna

It was 69 degrees here so I also was loving the day. It really does make a difference. Before we know it, we'll be complaining about 90 degrees and humidity! At least I will because I don't tolerate that kind of heat very well. lol! Give me temps in the 70's and I'm living in bliss.
