“‘You are my lamp, O Lord;
the LORD turns my darkness into light.’”
2 Samuel 22:29 (NIV)
Because of the way God made me, I enjoy sunshiny days. An overcast day can send me into the doldrums-nothing seems to go as it should.
Several years ago I voiced my concern about having no sunshine for days on end one winter. It went like this:
ME: Why doesn’t the sun shine? I’m getting tired of this.
SON: The sun always shines. It’s the clouds that get in the way.
My son was in junior high school at the time. I didn’t consider him an upstart for this comment; he had heard it at church, so had I but it didn’t register.
One of the blogs I frequent had a question about how we managed through the overcast days of winter. I left the comment that I started out each day by spending time with God. This helps me more than I realized.
