Waking up to stormy like weather is not the best way to start your day but, as soon as I looked outside a little bit of sunlight was starting to peak through the dense clouds and everything around seem to feel it. I looked out my window and saw 2 beautiful butterflies flying around playfully through the flowers, an iguana slowly making its way through the grass perfectly matching it’s color, 3 ducks blissfully swimming on the lake, and a cute squirrel jumping towards a half open coconut someone had left and it just ate happily, looking up from time to time making sure nothing would steal it away. Then, when I thought that was all, a tiny little head popped from the lake… a turtle coming out to bask.
You may read this and think it all inconsequential, or look at it and not even pay attention to it but, at that moment it meant a lot to me and brought a smile to my face. It reassured me of how after every storm the sun always shines, and seeing all these little animals have all they need made me realize how true the words of Mathew 6: 25-32 are.
Let’s look beyond the grey skies, and the stormy weather… there’s way to many things to celebrate and be grateful for each day.
Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
