Well it is finally summer and the weather is good. We have had a heat wave and in my apartment it has been terrible. The apartment building is built back in the days when the Cold war was a fact, so it has armoured concrete in the outer structure. So the heat comes in and warm up the whole place, making it almost impossible to be inside. Go out side was not really an option, since it was almost as bad there as well. We had rain twice during this short heat wave and it was most welcome.
So why did I just share this? Well, we humans have a nasty habit of complaining about more or less anything. If it is not the weather, it is the price on gas, the line in the super market or just anything else. Instead we should be glad that we have a car to get around when needed, food to eat and a roof over our heads. We take things for granted when we should not. Rejoice in what you have and thank God for His gifts!
Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by giving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”
Rejoice when it is sunny and warm. Rejoice when it is raining, because God loves you so much that he let the rain fall on you. We need the rain for crops and other plants to grow. The rain make things clean and take away thirst. When God let it rain on you He shows you how much He loves you.
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.by Lady Birgitha
