Sunshine or Rain

The sun has been shining down upon us for days and days now. My younger children are sure it’s summer (“Can we wear shorts and flip flops?”) and my older boys are smug that, even in the winter months, they never packed away their shorts.

The sun is shining - let's play outside!

But despite the lovely weather, the outings at the beach and trips to the park, I’ve seen the forecast. And I’m very familiar with winters in Washington state…

Oh dear, that looks wet...

Today, as I met with a friend and spent some time in prayer, I lifted up a sincere request that I would be content with both the sunshine and the rain. I know my heart; I long for the warmth of sunny days the blessings, the ease of life and not the work.

I want to live a life that shines with the love of Jesus – whether the view from my window is clear with blue skies or grey with a blanket of clouds.

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:18
