What is your favorite day of the year? One of my favorites is December 21. And one of the saddest is June 21. Here is why. In the Northern Hemisphere the day light hours begin to shorten with June 21. And that will continue until December 21, when the hours once again begin to increase.
That is kind of like life in general. Even in the best of times there are downsides and disappointments. Even so, in the worst of times there can be and are positives and hope for renewal. Finding a balance is indeed difficult. Thankfully there is help. The One who set this universe in motion can help us to see reasons for good in all seasons, while being ever mindful that troubles do exist. Indeed Our God is therefore a God for all times and seasons.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Heavenly Father, curb our over-confidence during the good times and our disappointment during the bad times, for Jesus’ sake.
JUST IN PASSING:
If you desire to see or just chat with “the Padre” you can contact him via the Mount Olive Lutheran Church phone (314-771-5714) or his personal cell phone (314-307-9021).
Until next week – peace, love, and joy in the Lord!
