WEEK 2 – MARCH 2009
Wherever you live in the world, the weather is going through so many changes, bringing with it all sorts of challenges from extreme heat to torrential floods and heavy snow. No matter what the circumstances, focus on all the wonderful things that each season brings. Here is a beautiful poem which says it all.
THE WEATHER REPORT
“Any day I’m vertical
is a good day”
…that’s what I always say.
If you ask me, ”How are you?”
I’ll answer, “GREAT!” because in saying so, I make it so.
When Life gives me dark clouds and rain, I appreciate the moisture that brings a soft curl to my hair.
When Life gives me sunshine, I gratefully turn my face up to feel its warmth on my cheeks.
When Life brings fog, I hug my sweater around me and give thanks for the cool shroud of mystery that makes the familiar seem different and intriguing.
When Life brings snow, I dash outside to catch the first flakes on my tongue, relishing the icy miracle that is a snowflake.
Life’s events and experiences are like the weather – they come and go, no matter what my preference.
So, what the heck?! I might as well decide to enjoy them.
For indeed, there IS a time for every purpose under Heaven.
And each season brings its own unique blessings.
Rain, hail or shine, have a great week!
Lots of love
