Spring Weather

It is astounding how much people complain about the weather.  I work directly with the public, in retail, and of course much of the complaining is just chit-chat, but still . . . it surely does come up a lot!We seem to be content for about 2 hours after a weather shift.  Alert, cheerful, interested in the change.  Then, after that, the climate complaints commence. . .

Sunny outside?  “we sure could use some rain . . . my garden is drying out . . .”

Raining outside?  (and it usually is)  ” I am so tired of the gray.  I wish the sun would come out . . . “

A warm sunny winter day?  “I sure wish it would snow.”

Snowing outside? “I can’t wait till it all melts away . . . oh, when will springtime come . . . “

I myself, having come from a desert place to this lush, damp, fragrantly green world of the Pacific Northwest, love the gentle steady rains.  They are a baptism of life for every creature–a testament to the abundant grace and blessings of God.

  I thank the Lord for the soft pattering on the roof, the sparkling drops on every leaf and twig, the fresh green smell all around.  No complaints here!
