"Sometimes the tears we hold inside simply need to be cried out.
To release them is a gift to ourselves. I hope you love yourself enough to cry."
This quote is from my friend Kelita.
April showers do bring May flowers. The grey damp days of spring are not always welcome. Yet the freshness of the air after a rain is sweet with the fragrance of new life. There are times in our lives when we are living in a place where the stormy clouds foreshadow the torrents of raindrops to come. Lest we think it weak to cry we should think of tears as spring showers washing away the emotional snow and grime of winter, bringing the promise of new beginnings in our life.
Psalm 56: 8 & 9
You keep track of all my sorrows.[a]
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.
9 My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help.
This I know: God is on my side!

WEATHER PREDICTION ?
I am looking forward to this weekend. How about you? Do you have any plans? In Canada, this is a long weekend. As Canadians, we tend to be pre-occupied with the weather, but even more so when it is a 3 day weekend.
I am like the average, listening to the weather report and attempting to plan outings, picnics and gardening according to the weather. Does it work? Only if one is flexible... which of course goes contrary to the concept of planning. With time I have developed a theory: If it doesn't snow, its been a good weekend. If it rains only one day, its been a great weekend. Two days of sun and I don't have to wear 2 layers of clothes, it was a fantastic weekend. If I have spent time with family and friends it was the best weekend.
We can't rely on the weather to accommodate our plans any more than we can control the events in our lives. But we can chose our attitude, set our priorities and focus on what is truly important in life.
Rain or shine, have the best weekend! God Bless your week to come.
