Gray Days

Monday of this week was a gray day...the kind that makes me want to curl up with a book with the window open to the sound of raining steadily coming down outside, forgetting everything else on my "to do" list. My dorm room window is such that usually the rain streams in when I open it...not this morning though. The rain must have been coming down in a different direction. I listened to the water pour down on the buildings outside, the cars driving through puddles, and the wind through the trees...all while finishing up a paper for a class later that day. It was peaceful to me after a restless night of sleep.

God knows exactly what we need when we need it. He knew I needed the encouragement of rain in my whirlwind of stress this week. The peace he gave me takes me back to the fist blog I ever wrote. Days like those inspire me somehow to write, read, and be creative.

Please know this moment, right now, that God is in control and that nothing can separate you from his love. There is nothing like a weary being lifting up his head to praise God through the storm and rain.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
