Day 78 of 100 Days of the Joy of the Lord

April 3rd, 2015

Winter_Summer“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” ~ Anne Bradstreet. This thought process could be expanded to include, “If we had no rain, we would not appreciate the sunlight.” And, “If not for darkness, we wouldn’t appreciate the light.” No one wants to go through anything that has a negative effect. That’s no surprise. One thing to keep in mind is that it’s not what we go through; it’s HOW we go through.

Many of us are anxiously waiting for spring-like weather. This winter was cold and dismal with too much snow and too much ice. Spring-like weather is taking its time to make an appearance. The calendar says it’s April, but the thermostat seems to be stuck in February. “In all things, give thanks.” Yes, I thank God for giving me another day – as chilling as it may be. I thank God that I have the warmth of shelter over my head and warm clothing when I must weather the outdoor chill of this extended winter. I give thanks that even though winter 2015 seems to be lasting forever, that eventually warmer weather will come. And therein lies my Joy!
