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!!
