Two Dreary Days
So...we have two cold, rainy days in a row and I'm sulking and crawling under a blanket and pulling it over my head. I experience such disappointment when my options are limited. When I am forced to stay inside, I want to be outside. When it is too hot outside, I want to be inside. Apparently, I'm insatiable. Why can't I just have what I want, when I want it? Why can't the weather be 75 degrees and sunny all the time? Okay, I know we do need rain. I would really like the wind to stay under 10 mph so my golf ball doesn't go bouncing off walls and trees when I aim straight at the pin. Although, to be painfully honest, that could have something to do with operator error. Don't we tend to have a preconceived notion of what things should look like? I know I do. When it doesn't look like that we are disillusioned and even shattered. How do you suppose God felt when Eve took a bite and Adam followed suit? We have a way of grieving His heart over more important things than disdain for the weather. The question I ought be asking is more like. Why don't I give Him what He wants in my life when He wants it?
