Welcome Back!

After a string of gray rainy days, we woke up to blue skies and sunshine this morning! Welcome back, Mr. Sun-- Mr.Yellow Balloon on your mission around the world. What detained you?

     "I've been here every day, like clockwork."
     Huh-uh. We never saw you once.
     "Were you looking up?"
     Of course.
     "Not far enough. Your eyes were stuck on the clouds. I was above them."

Isn't that the way we are with God? Our eyes get stuck on our troubles so we think He isn't there. But, like the sun that He placed in the sky for our good, He is ever looking upon us, comforting us even when we don't "see" Him.

Someday He will say to us, "Welcome home child, enter into the joy of thy Lord." That's when we'll discover that it wasn't the sunshine at all that lifted our spirits, for in heaven--that most joyous of places--there is no need of the sun. "The glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp."
