Often when I sit down to write and the sun is coming up light bursts across my desk and there is this sense of a new day and new possibilities. Something fresh is rising. Rain can bring the same creative enlivening sense to other days. When the day begins do you begin with a grateful heart? Do you say to yourself that before me is a day filled with new freshly minted chances to interact with life? Even when others around you see a sunset and clouds you can see a sunrise and silver linings. You have choices and can learn to filter out the negativity that others seem to thrive on. Psalm 50:1 says, “The Creator, the Mighty One, is God, and he has spoken; he has summoned all humanity from where the sun rises to where it sets.” We engage in vision casting every time we go through the doors of our home or apartment. We have an opportunity to nourish people around us with our own beautiful internal weather. Go take on the world. You know who has handled the past, you know the future is under control, so live today and enjoy the moments of life – be grateful for all the contours and landscapes of your life.
