I hope you awoke well and rested.
It promises to be a beautiful day, doesn't it? Oh, not sunny and 75? Is that what really makes a beautiful day? Oh, I enjoy sunny days with perfect temperatures (for me that means 60's), but there are so many kinds of beautiful days.
I enjoy sunny days (not too hot), rainy days, stormy days, snowy days, drizzly days, and even just plain cloudy days. Each has its pleasures and benefits.
There are different types of days, and God's Holy Spirit is our companion and comforter through them all. Just recently, we've had days that make me so thankful for Jesus and His place in our lives.
We've had days of rejoicing... a birthday, Mother's Day, and our 29th anniversary. We also have Father's Day to look forward to soon.
We've also had days of sadness... my grandmother's funeral, my husband's father passing away last week.
We've had days of troubles... our van requiring some expensive repairs suddenly, and missing our anniversary trip because of it.
We've had days of busy-ness... driving children and husband to and from jobs and appointments. I've felt kind of grumbly about it just because it all wears me out so much. I've had a revelation just this week about how blessed we are that I am available to drive everyone and help make life work with just one car.
We've had a day of rest... just one... but oh how lovely it was Sunday... going out for dinner, then relaxing at the house with a book or napping while the kids went swimming at the Y.
Whatever kind of day it is outside, I pray that Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit will help you to have a beautiful day on the inside.
Be blessed and be busy enjoying this good life God's given you!
