The Gift of the Sun

The first words out of the mouth this morning were, “It’s so gloomy out.”

I’m already commenting on this?

I’m pretty sure it’s only been a day.

People have warned me about this for months, probably a year if I’m being honest.

I’m prepared for it to rain, but it’s hard for me to live with straight up gloominess. Since I’m from Colorado, I expect snow to come out of clouds that look like this, but that’s not how it works here in Seattle.

The best part of the day came when the sun peered out from behind a cloud, and suddenly the sky was blue—a Colorado blue.

It’s like God is telling me I can have it for one more day.

His precious gift is shining, and for the time being there are no clouds in sight.

  1. People always say that going away from home will allow you to appreciate it so much more when you return! Illinois weather is still throwing me off, I expect clouds to mean cold weather and snow, when really its just an overcast day! My neighbors think its funny watching me come out in sweats then run inside to change into shorts! We'll adjust eventually and really cherish the blue sky days!!
