Earlier today I wrote a prayer in this blog voicing my concerns about the outcome of tomorrow's Supreme Court decision, and while it helped me with my concerns about this country I love so much, I still found myself not in the brightest of moods.
I think this is something that just happens to all of us from time to time, and I've learned over the years that the best cure is to do something to see the best of things, especially from the perspective of the many blessings that God has given us.
So I walked outside to do my chores and just really took my time looking about me. We had some major thunderstorms and rainfall over the last few days and today, with the sun shining brightly, the grass and trees were a beautiful green, the sky blue, and the flowers blooming in all their glory.
With the grass growing almost as fast as I can cut it lately, I decided to let a few of my horses loose, the ones who really trim well, in the yard around the house and barn. They save me labor and they also save me hay which is quite expensive these days, and since the green grass affords them much more food value, it is truly a God-created win-win situation.
Then looking further out into the pasture, a large family of turkeys was rooting about in the field amongst the horse apples, followed closely by large crows, which pick up any grain left behind. At one point getting too close, the old toms quickly let them know to mind their manners.
Finally, taking in a panoramic view, I saw a composite of beautiful plants, animals, grass, trees and sky all sending me the direct message that God is always here and He is ultimately in control. It reminded me that everything happens for a reason even though we may not know what it is and if we trust Him and love Him everything for us will be okay. And, as always, I thank Him for reminding me.
Have a wonderful day today, thank Him for what he provides, relax and enjoy your day of rest knowing that if you are with Him, you have no reason to sorry about anything. God bless you all.
