Weather talk

Matthew 6:34
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

This morning I woke up at 7 am to a bright and shiny morning, which I didn't mind beigng alive for. It never ceases to amaze me that the early morning is less ofman issue when it's sixty and sunny outside.

It also never ceases to amaze me how much I find myself talking about the weather. All during the day at work, we're wondering what it looks like outside. Weather dictates what I do on my days off, where I go on vacation, even sometimes if it's worth pulling myself out of bed a little earlier to walk. It's everywhere.

But whenever someone wants to give an example of frivolous conversation, it's the weather. As if that is the most pointless conversation anyone can have. But it's okay at we spend hours talking about Snooki at the bar, or the friends we once knew and how they've ruined their lives.

I can't help but sometimes think that we might be focused on the wrong things- that our conversations focus around things that we feel like we can control or we are above, because the real things, like what tomorrow will bring, is out of our reach.

The beauty of our faith, which I think I love most, is that it takes care of itself. And while I haven't always been in control, I have always come out on the other side- and when I really take what happens in stride, I come out a little wiser, and a lot calmer.

I'll avoid the Snooki talk and stick with the weather chat. I can't control it, but I can embrace it. Just like I can embrace the future that God has for me with Him walking along side me. I don't have to stress it. God's got it covered.
