It’s summertime and I’m pretty sure that we are all feeling the heat wave that has made its way across this great country of ours, but even as the temperatures rise more than we’d like them to, I am appreciating the glow of the sunshine. This glow can have many different meanings to how you look at it or apply it to your life, but for me it just means that I am enjoying the feeling of the things around me being as good as they are. Everything may not be great, that is life but to see now how things have been working out, and to look out of the window and see the sun shining (even with the heat that it brings) lets me know that even in the darkest of hours that things are not as bad as they may seem, and that God will always make a way. The sunshine will always give me hope, even in the midst of the rain, which has been coming in droves, has washed away all of the pains that we have, to see the sun shining lets me know that things will always work out, no matter what. So I look forward to seeing the sun out and even though it may be hot out, I enjoy seeing God smiling down on me, because it makes me more appreciative of all that He has done for me….
I was sitting and thinking and out of nowhere it seemed to come to me, but putting it all together took some time (as do all good things). Whether/weather, two words that sound alike and in some instances, the way that I’m thinking, tend to hold similar meaning. Where I live the weather here can change from cold to hot, from hot to raining within a matter of hours; in with the word whether we tend to change our minds so frequently it can be mind boggling to some. Oh a lot of us do it and when you think about it the old saying comes into mind “you change your mind like the weather”; and while we’re scatter brained about this one thing and then moving to the next we tend to wonder whether or not the choices we’re about to make fit into our lives. Will they make us happy? Are we doing what feels right to us or someone else? There are so many questions that have our minds fleeting with either nervous energy or fear and whether or not that is a good thing is all up to us. Just like with the everchanging weather that seems to follow its own mind to do what it wants to do, we should be the same way. Live our lives the way we want to and don’t worry about others’ judgements because that is not what we should live for. I awoke to this beautiful sunny day, albeit a little cold, I felt inspired to do the things that have been lingering far too long on my to-do list and just enjoy all that I have. I have love all around me and God has given me so much joy even though where I am standing now may not be where I choose to be, it’s still a good spot. Whether I choose to do this or that or any of it at all I will still flow through life just as the weather does…as carefree and breezy as ever.
