Do you ever get tired of cold, rainy, cloudy days? It has been like that around here for the last few weeks. This morning I was complaining to the Lord about His weather, "Lord don't you think enough is enough? I am getting a little tired of the cold, damp rainy days." I no sooner spoke those words when a brilliant string of light flashed through my living room window. It got my attention. "Lord, You don't like my complaining. Who am I to question Your weather patterns. What about the people who have lost their homes with some much rain. Where is a grateful heart?"
Then this thought came to my mind, "The sun was there all the time, behind the clouds and rainy days. I didn't need to complain, just wait. The clouds will pass and the sun will shine again. I love my mother's saying, "rain is like liquid sunshine". She was a cheerful person.
The sun continued to intermittently shine between the clouds. It was a good feeling to know that the sun was again beginning to shine. Wait a minute. " Is this show and tell, Lord ? What are You really trying say. I get it."
There are days and seasons in my life when You allow the rain to pour and the clouds to cover the Son, wondering where You are? How foolish of me. You have been there all the time, right behind the clouds. The SON is always shining. You are the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Your presence is with me no matter what circumstances are effecting my life.
When the trials get long and it feels like it will never end, it is a good feeling to know that the SON is right behind those clouds. The clouds will lift and I will see the SON again.

This is an amazing little four year old girl singing with her daddy. When I saw it, It confirmed to me the importance of family. God created family. He has His own family. As you listen to this little girl sing along with her daddy, just think how blessed our Father in Heaven is when we sing along with Him in praise and worship. He delights in His children.

This is a true story. I had to run to Walmart for a few things. It was a cold and rainy day. Entering the store, I put my brand new black gloves into my jacket pocket. The shopping didn't take long. When I finished and was heading out, I went to put my gloves on and you guessed it, only ONE. Don't you love that? A brand new pair of gloves for one hand only.
My first thought was go back through the store where I was shopping and ask the lost and found... Nothing. Then I thought "Dottie, why don't you ask the Lord He knows where everything is".
"Of course, Lord, you have told me many times to ask for an angel to help me, because they love to minister to the heirs of salvation. "
"Lord, I need an angel. I really would like to find that glove." I continued looking some more and found nothing.
Upon leaving through the exit out into the rain, a young man coming in the entrance said, "Hey, lady you dropped your glove.' I turned around and right behind me on the floor was my lost black glove. It was totally dry. I looked for the young man and he was gone. I believe it was the angel the Lord had sent.
I picked up the glove and cried all the way to the car. "Lord, you are so good. Even a little thing like that You are mindful of. Thank you Lord for Your kindness."
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for there by some have entertained angels unaware.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
