I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July! We have been busy this month with our first 4th of July barbeque at our new home, overnight visits from family members and trips to the beach. I can’t believe how quickly this month has gone by. Well before July is over I would like to share with you some thoughts that I had a few days ago.

One morning as I was opening up the doors and windows on the sun porch my eyes were immediately directed towards the southern sky, ominous dark clouds were floating all around. I began to contemplate whether or not to close up the doors and windows since the weather patterns at the beach can be so unpredictable.

The northern sky was quite a different scene, sunlight, blue skies and puffy white clouds.

But eventually the entire sky became dark and the rain came down. As I watched this contrasting natural act I found it to be an excellent example of how life can be at times. Bright, sunny, and warm, with a slight breeze to cool you off at just the right time, and then the dark rain clouds roll in.

There are times in all of our lives when things happen that make us feel lost and alone, but this too will pass away. The dark clouds will fade away and the white puffy billowy clouds will return. The rain will come and refresh your life and the sun will once again shine upon your face, just the way it brightly shines up in the sky.


In God’s pattern book of nature we can trace many valuable lessons. – Our Daily Bread July 13th 2012.
