Rainy Days and Mondays

It was a rainy Monday today. I remember being a kid and totally relating to the line in the song made popular by the Carpenters, " Rainy days and Mondays always get me down." I used to really hate the rain. And Mondays.

It's been twenty-four weeks. One hundred sixty eight days to the day.

I've come to appreciate the rain. And Mondays aren't so bad anymore either. Twenty four weeks ago tonight I don't think I believed I would live to see another day. But I have. I think I've said it before, every Monday gets a little better, even a rainy Monday like today.

Today I took my little ones to Tot Time at the library and we had a great time. I did laundry and a bit of surface cleaning throughout the house. I made breakfast, lunch and dinner. ( This is a major accomplishment since I don't really like to cook.) And I was able to check quite a few things off my to do list. It was a productive rainy Monday.

I just have to keep saying it. I love the Lord. Twenty four weeks ago "He heard my cry and pitied every groan. As long as I live, and troubles rise, I hasten to His Throne."

"My soul finds rest in God alone... " Psalm 62:1

You seem to be getting a new perspective on alot of things. God is good and faithful. It's raining here today...but I have always loved the rain.

Sharmayn: Just want you to know that the Lord brought you to my mind today and I am praying for you and your whole family. I notice you haven't posted in a while. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and give you HIS PEACE (that passes ALL understanding!). Elaine in Demopolis
