Rainy Days

There sure a lot of rainy days in April this year. I'm not sure if it's more or less, but it feels like more. Now it has not been a nonstop rain. There are periods of sunshine and no rain. There is something called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) that people sometimes suffer during long periods without exposure to the sun. It's kind of a overall mood change because we need the light in our life. I know that some of us are going through some rather rainy days right now. Numerous things can bring those rainy days. Sadly, when the rainy days some of us act as if the rainy days are still around us. We walk around ignoring the light in a bad mood. Essentially, walking around SAD. So, what is making you so sad? Is there a reason? Is there justification? If worry has you in it's grip, maybe it might be a good time to actually look at the worry. Why worry? Does fear have you in it's grip? Why fear? We are told to not worry and do not fear. We are held in God's grip, not in the grip of worry or fear. Right now here, it is not raining. It does not feel like it's raining. The sun is still out there, may not be shining, but the light is slowly getting through. Go in peace and go with God.
