The sun shines everywhere …

sunshine“Praise God from heaven…praise him sun and moon, praise him, you morning stars…” Psalm 148:1,3

When my daughter had her first child in New Jersey, we left behind sunny Arizona to spend five months helping to care for Nate. Since then she has had Mason, and because I didn’t have the luxury of spending months helping to care for him, I vowed I would never let more than a few months pass without seeing the boys.

When it works out, I try to go to New Jersey close Christmas, which includes my birthday on December 30—a gift I give to myself  to spend as “grandma time.” Sometimes, the days are cloudy and damp, and the only sunshine I see is the smiles and laughter of the little guys.

Yes, the sun does shine somewhere behind the clouds, but it is a pleasure to see God’s greatness coming to us in the form of warm rays of sunshine.

Dear Lord, help us to praise you every day—especially during the cloudy ones. Amen.
