I'm a real visual person as in I have to see it to get it. Don't even think of showing me a 2 inch square paint sample and ask me how this color will look on the wall! I'd have to paint half the wall and then close one eye to tell you what I think!
It's almost the new season of summer, especially for those of us with kids going to be out of school. What if we went into these next three months determined to realize, recognize, and record each day some good thing, something we're grateful for? What kind of people would we be by the time autumn rolls around?
There will always be clouds. There will always be problems. There will always be some part of our lives that doesn't feel like we want it to.
Psalms 68:19 says "Blessed be the Lord God who daily loads us with benefits". If that's the case, I want to remember just one from each day and then be able to look at this pile of evidence in days to come and remember, no matter what clouds are in my sky, that God has been good.
