Clouds

It is a beautiful May day in Minnesota.  Over 90 degrees, windy, not a cloud in the sky.

A sunny day, with a brilliant blue background is always beautiful, welcome in Minnesota, especially in fickle May. 

But have you ever noticed that a sunny sky is flat?   There is no dimension, and no perspective.  Clouds give the sky depth, interest, movement, light and shadow — perspective.

I think our lives mirror the sky.  They are more interesting, dimensional, deep, and moving when they are dotted with clouds. 

I know a day full of clouds gives me new perspective — even if it just makes me grateful for the sunny ones!  And a stormy day has me running for the Son… and ever so thankful when the storms subside. 

Clouds help me see better, clearer, God’s existence in my life.  Without them, I would be oblivious to the blessings of a sunny day. 

How about you?  Do you welcome the clouds, or would you rather always live on the sunny side of the street?
