Today is a great day because of the Lord! I am encouraged by some flowers that are blooming despite the cold temperature outside. Here in North Carolina, 47 degrees is very cold. Yet these flowers, which are blown about by the wind, are still blooming bright and beautiful. Can we say the say the same thing when we are blown by the winds of life? Can we still praise God and be a shining light to the world in the midst of the storm? That is something to think about—isn’t it?
