Give Thanks

This morning – I was thinking.  (For those of you who know me – that was more like shifting gears without clutching – a real grinding noise).  Anyway – the weather has been absolutely breath taking the last few days.  We received one-half inch of rain a few days ago and then cool mornings.  As the sun was coming up in all its splendor this morning – I thought about all the adversity of the last few years – where we were at this time last year and where we are today.  I know that I am a different person for having travelled that road. I see things differently.  I don’t take God’s everyday gifts for granted – rain! – a glorious Spring – a sunny day without extreme temps – green grass and water for the animals – a hay field being cut and baled.  I take notice now.  And I thank God when I see it, feel it, taste it, smell it (oh, the sweet smell of rain).

God is good – ALL the time.  The roads we travel are paved with adversity – in all kinds of different formats and measures.  The times we are in are difficult.  I know that each one of you have faced extreme difficulties – financially, emotionally, and physically.  God has not taken His eye off of you for one minute!!  Life can be like a bucking horse – Hang on!!  Don’t get thrown!!  It’s not easy and it’s scary – but you are not alone.  God is with all of us – every step of every new day.  HE is still in control and will see us through.  Trust God!!

    You make me cry! Your words are so moving. I thank God for the rain too and the good weather and for you! I pray the cattlemen, the rice farmers, the cotton farmers and all have a wonderful summer.
