Folks who watched the first two games of the World Series and the celebratory parade a few days ago saw some of the great weather, but locals realize what a near thing it was as we are being told frost and freezing rain are possible any day...tho' next week is expected to be back in 70s, sunny and mild....maybe.
Maybe growing up here was a good experience in that the very changeability of the weather was a daily reminder that no two days are the same. The farmers need the rain and the sporting community prefers the sun, so no matter what is going on, someone is being bless. In truth, we all need both rain and sun at various times and for various reasons.
So the next time the weather does not suit me, I will choose to be thankful, either for myself or for those who are blessed by warm or cool, wet or dry, sunny or overcast. No matter what, I'll choose to be thankful.
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
