Another dull and rainy day here in B.C. on Vancouver Island. What do you make of it? Well, you could stay in bed for the day, curl up and read a good book or bury your head in the sand. Seriously, though, if you let it, the weather or any unhappy circumstance in your life could get you down. You may begin to feel a "grump" coming on or at the very least want to complain. That's how I started to feel this morning. Fortunately, I caught myself right away and remembered that this is the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. Immediately, I began to smile and even sing. I had a great day, working a few hours at the preschool. Later in the day, I had my annual check-up at the cancer clinic and was declared "cured" by the oncologist, who said he doesn't need to see me anymore. I am overjoyed. And, yes, it is still a dull day and raining, but not on my parade.
