Find joy in the midst of blah


Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad today! 

It's been a season of weather discontent. Too much snow, too much rain, too much gloom and on and on. 

Lamenting the rain that gives life to greenery is now a pastime for many in my area. We forget the drought that killed vegetation and maimed our properties, park and public spaces. 

Complain, complain, complain. 

FaceBook, Twitter, in person or phone, we complain that we have no sunshine.

Massive gray skies and clouds frame my daytime views most days, and I also ask for the sunshine. But I and countless others fail to see the beauty of the current moment. Seems like we should stop and thank the Lord that we're alive to see the day with its dreariness and all. 

That's how I've decided to look at my days.

Soon we'll see endless days ushering in soaring temperatures and humidity fit for a sauna spa. 

Instead of lamenting out loud and influencing others and especially our own spirits, I challenge each one of us to embrace the joy of the dreary season! 

Yeah! Love the blah days as much as you love the sunshiny days! Why not take advantage of all of the days of your life? 

Ecclesiastes 7:14 When life is good, enjoy it. But when life is hard, remember: God gives good times and hard times, and no one knows what tomorrow will bring. 

You and I don't know if tomorrow brings true sorrow.

Let the dreary, cold, wet and overcast day be beautiful.

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,
    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,
    even when they are old.
15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
