Shades of Grey
It is a blessing to live in a climate that has multiple months of grey....grey clouds and grey skies. Living in grey forces out the subtle side of beauty. Beauty that would be missed if one didn't make the effort to see it. It really comes down to a choice. Languish in the "grey-ness" or seek something good and beautiful.
Don't say, "Why were things better in the good old days?" It isn't wise to ask that kind of question. (Ecclesiastes 7:10)
Likewise it is easy to say that our lives used to be "less grey" or better...better before sickness...better before divorce...better before children (ha!)...better before a layoff...
In the "grey" moments of life what do we see? What good and beautiful thing is to be found in the murky soup we sometimes call life?
grace and peace...
