A few thoughts for today ...

It's raining - a lot!  When I was a girl I used to sing, "Rain, rain, go away!  Come again another day.  Carol and Bonnie want to play!"  I have since learned that it is not necessary to have sunshine in order to play.  Although I do not often dance in the rain, I do run in the rain and I sometimes enjoy it.  I don't get too hot during my run, the moisture in the air makes it easier to breathe, and I will dry.  If I wait for sunshine before I play, my opportunities for joy will be limited.

I am compelled to write.  Don't ask me why - I do not know.  I find that the more I write, the more I feel compelled, even urgent.  My words may never influence others or change the world, but they often change my world.  Sometimes they only change my view of the world, and that can be invaluable.

I love natural hot springs - like this one.

Blessings come to those who wait upon the Lord.  I am so blessed and so is my family.  That is not to say we don't have trials or endure things that are difficult, but in the end we are truly blessed. 

The sun is shining even though the sky is full of rainclouds.
