Beautiful Day

Today a friend said “Isn’t it a beautiful day?”  That struck me. Normally, I would not say that pouring down rain and 40 degrees was a beautiful day.  However, in light of the drought it was exactly the kind of day we needed. She was right it was beautiful.

I think it is all a matter of perspective.  When we are in a drought rain is beautiful, in a flood the sun is a welcome relief.  As humans we are like that as well.  When things are tough we seek God.  When they are not, we do not.  In a perspective changing moment all that we have thought is one way becomes another.  Our definitions change of what is beautiful and what is needed.  I am glad that God doesn’t change like we do.  He is a rock that is solid.  He does not need to change the definitions.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  The drought does not ruffle him, he sends the rain.  I am thankful that he sent us this beautiful day…I will rejoice and be glad in it.
