Hurricane Patricia hit Mexico and sent torrential rains to Texas this past weekend.
After the rain, beautiful skies appeared.
I left my house yesterday for a morning walk.
The white clouds in a brilliant blue heaven were welcome sights.
Sarah, the little angel I write about, would have had many fluffy places to choose for a resting place.
The bad storm brought disaster for many these past few days.
In Mexico and Texas, roofs caved and residents lost homes.
Roads washed away and people drowned.
On the other hand...
Fire was taking homes in Central Texas, but
rain ceased those raging fires blazing out of control.
The deluge replenished drought areas.
Citizens in Wichita Falls, TX needed showers.
Water supply had been so low this past summer that people
evacuated the region.
So was the storm a bad thing or a good thing?
Perspective makes a difference, doesn't it?
"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
I Thessalonians: 5:22
Hard to do, isn't it? Thankful for harmful circumstances? Ugh. Who wants to do that?
Scripture tells us to be thankful during bad conditions because God is faithful.
He works all things to our good when we love Him and are called for His purpose.
Here's Sarah sitting on one of her clouds.
She loves those fluffy things but doesn't care for the stormy ones.
