The weather this week,
is a mix of
And even as we enjoy the sunshine
we are aware of the clouds gathering
to block out the light and warmth.
But what hope there is
when we look up and see the clouds breaking up
and the sun breaking through!

I wrote this yesterday, and didn't get to finish it.
Today I have been at our school athletics carnival,
shivering and doing duty with a stopwatch,
until the rains came down,
and we hurried home to change into dry clean clothes
and snuggle by the heater.

I am thankful that during the ups and downs of life
there is a Hope to cling to
that brings me JOY
no matter what the weather.
Though you have not seen him, you love him
and even though you do not see him now,
you believe in him and
are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
for you are receiving the goal of your faith,
the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:8
