Letting the sun shine

This spring has been very cold so far. We had some nice days right at the end of "winter." Then it became cold again. A lot of rain, snow, and just plain cloudy days. The last couple of days the sun has shone. It has looked beautiful. My heart has sang. Yet it has still been pretty cold. For a moment every now and then I wonder if it will be cold forever!

Sometimes I think life is a lot like this. When we are in the middle of a trial, we wonder if life will ever be "good again." Will we ever have peace? Will we ever be content?

Yet I sometimes have a problem when everything is good! It seems like when life is swimming along at a nice pace I worry about what is around the corner. If life is good, something major is about to collapse! I don't know if you readers feel the same way or not!

The thing is, worrying about whatever mystery-up-coming trial only depletes the joy from now and offers us nothing during whatever trial may come. At least that is what I am telling myself--enjoy those moments now. They may be fleeting  they may be few, but they are ours for the enjoyment while they last!


  1. Isn't it true, that we tend to not notice what we are in, just what may come next. I get like that when someone gets sick, or I'm sick, and I feel like we're going to be sick for the rest of our lives. I love your pictures. Beautiful family.

  2. Another perfect for me post, Tiff. I love you to bits and pieces.
