2/26 We thank you, Lord, that there is no weather in heaven. Help us to see beyond the dullness of the day – to instead show our gratitude for Life and be more willing to share the good things of life with others. Remind us to reach out to those who need encouragement – who lack food & clothing – who cope with illness – and those who are lonely. Amen
Our days start out monitoring the weather. What will the weather be like today? We dress accordingly. We allot extra time if we have to shovel off a car or path to the garage or mailbox.
What will it be like to not have that on my radar (no pun intended)? I can’t imagine no weather. I can’t imagine no pain. For someone who thinks creatively and artistically, that is a rebuke…but I have a human brain and can not fathom a heaven with it.
As far as the east is from the west, is my ability to imagine and God’s vision.
Mine is rendered in grey, God’s in colors and textures I have never seen.
And every now and then we get a glimpse of what awaits us…beyond.
