Many folks in America are probably thinking along the same wave lengths, ” this is the strangest spring I can ever remember?” As traces of winter pop up weekly, summer can’t get here soon enough. However, in the mean time, you are stuck with a daily dilemma, whether or not to trust in the so called experts to accurately predict the weather?
As a little league coach, 7 days in a week aren’t enough to make up the games rained out and those cancelled hours in advance only to witness sunny skies appear. Despite these interruptions to schedules, there is a silver lining. Rain can slow down one’s pace in life, bring families together or provide needed ingredients for a successful garden. For others who work at airports, malls or stores, weather delays can make for some of the most profitable days of the year as well as provide shelter to take a walk inside.
The question arises, how much will you allow weather to influence your mood? Weather related depression is common for cities like Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. Like a cruel mistress, weather can lead you on, only to crush your spirit late in the day. In the end, the choice is yours, making the best of today, James 4:14, putting worries about tomorrow on hold. Weather or not, how will you respond when another front washes out your plans?
