Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

This long Texas, cold, icy and cloudy winter has taught me something about myself.
I have never experienced what some say is a "seasonal blues" until this year.
Oh my!
Right about the time I was wondering if Eeyore was coming to live through me from now on

Life can bring trials and scripture is very strong about reminding us they will come.  Those trials on a sunny day are hard enough, but take away my sun and somehow I just don't shine.

I started to go to bed earlier and earlier each night.  My mind started to send me spiraling down with my thoughts.  I knew the Lord had say at the first of the year that I was to stay in His WORD.
I have been staying in His WORD!

As the Word has washed over me.  Some of the Words were correction, while others were encouragement.

Then He brought out the SUN!!!

This Texas girl is just dancing for joy!

Russia has even been warmer than TEXAS!

Today I went to my Rachel job.  I had been very intimated, but today each of my vendors were wonderful.  I am making connections with people my age or older.  Guess what?  
I think I am going to survive my Rachel job.
Just wait until I show the pictures of the transformation of this home.
I am learning new tricks and being stretched, but so far, my client is pleased.

 I am not dreading my cleaning job tomorrow either.
It will be a warm and sunny day.
Nor am I anxious about my home room assignments for Benjamin's class.
BECAUSE who can complain when we will have SUN all WEEKEND?
Next week we might even be in the eighties.

Now who would have guessed that God would take the weather to teach me a lesson?
Only the Son can reveal Himself through the Sun.

I imagine it would be like that for me if we didn't have sun. I do hope you get some warm Temps soon.
I am glad so many other things are going well.
I love the sun too.

Since we are under a server winter storm of more snow than we ever see, your post makes me so happy for you and makes me smile.....

Dance and be happy girl and enjoy the sunshine that the Sun is providing.....

One of my friends suggests that God's people haven't rebuked this rotten weather as they should. She wonders how we'll get any victory over things if we can't do this simple thing. Ha! I rather liked her line of thinking.

Sue said...

Much Love to you and Benjamin

I have always loved wintry, cloudy weather but yesterday when the sun finally came out after over a week of cloudy, I did a double-take, a sharp intake of breath--it surprised me so and I was surprised that I was surprised--if that makes any sense--today we were at 40 and tomorrow we are supposed to see mid-fifties--I have to admit, I am excited.

I can't wait to see the new decorating job pictures--we will get to see, right?

I have a feeling I'd have a VERY hard time without the sun. We are suppose to hit 80 tomorrow, and honestly I am not exactly dancing a jig over here about it. Maybe if I'd been through what you all have, I'd be singing a different tune. Glad everything is going well. ENJOY that sun!!

Sandy said...

I guess I am about the only lady around blog land who loves the snowy wintery weather! We woke up to a little more than seven inches and we are loving it...especially the dachshunds! Next week it will be 60 degrees and sunny so we are enjoying the snow while we can!

Amazing how many ways He speaks to us!

Sharon said...

How encouraging, Janette!! I find myself in the doldrums lately, and it has been good for me to have some actual sunshine lately, too.

Of course, even in the darkest valleys, the SON still shines!!


Angel said...

I agree Janette. Isn't it amazing what a difference the sun, and especially the Son, can make? Enjoy the beautiful weekend!

Maryann said...

The picture of the sun brightened my day. You know I am totally with you on this one but the Lord has been using this season to teach me a thing or two, so I am trying to see value in even the dreariest days. Enjoy the sunshine

Tanna said...

I am right there with you on the sun lesson, Janette!!! Oh, praises to the Son that the sun is here!! blessings ~ tanna

Debbie said...

So apparently, your son came out right when my ice was striking. This is the first that I've seen this post. I'm so glad you are getting both literal and spiritual/emotional/youknowwhatImean sunshine right now. You deserve some.

And how fun about the Rachel job!
