“Oh! Teach us to live well!
Teach us to live wisely and well!…
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long…
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!”
–Psalm 90:13-15 MSG
Do you sometimes wish that every day would be filled with sunshine?
“Anyone who thinks sunshine is pure happiness, has never danced in the rain”* I first began to love the rain when I was a life guard. Not only would I have a day off, but I had the cabin to myself and listen to the rain drops hit the metal roof. Often our lives need God’s surprises. His variety brings joy to our lives. Without clouds, we wouldn’t have rain. Without the rain, we wouldn’t have rainbows.
