Even in the Rain..

Grace and Peace
There have been storms all around us these past few days but none have really brought rain or thunder here. This morning I woke with the birds. When they are just waking they all try out their voices and sing their songs... later you rarely hear so many at the same time but at the pre dawn time they began their song. Usually it is one bird that starts the chorus and then the others join in. Even though it was/is a grey morning they sang.
I listened to the birds with my morning prayers and then when the rain came and the thunder continued they were harder to hear...but they were there singing.

So apparently we have to understand that even in the rain the birds sing. We all too often just give up when 'storms' come into our lives... What could we do to teach ourselves to sing... no matter the weather in the world around us.

Sara Lee Guthrie, Arlo's daughter and Woodie's granddaughter has a beautiful song...
You Gotta sing...all the gotta find yourself a simple song and sing it all day long...
You gotta sing....

Find your song today...
God abides
