It's sunny here in southwestern Pennsylvania today and the temperatures are in the 50's....that's a blessing in and of itself. But to be honest, the sun always shines whether we see it or not. Often clouds interfere with its brilliance, or perhaps an oncoming storm, but regardless of the weather, the sun is always above us.
I'm reminded of God's Light as my blessing today. I have just spent three days in Virginia by my mother's bedside saying good-bye to her earthly body as it slows down. She's been ready for a very long time to head to her eternal home and I have been dragging my feet with wanting her to leave, but now I need to realize, as I have often taught, this world is not our home. We are here temporarily, but where we are headed is eternal. It matters not what happens here on earth, God is still in control and what occurs or unfolds is being allowed by our awesome and great God.
As hubby and I head back to Virginia tomorrow, I'm not sure how much I will be posting on a daily basis, but rest assured there will be an outpouring of blessings as we think about mom, reflect on the blessing she has been in our lives and look forward to the day when we will be reunited.
The SON is always shining....thank you, Jesus!
