Psalm 121:1, 2  I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! (NLT)

The morning weather guy tweeted about today’s forecast, “Gorgeous may be an understatement.” Spring Fever may well hit its peak in the next few hours. Staying focused and productive could be a challenge. Where do days like this come from? They are gifts of God, Maker of Heaven and Earth.

Take a snapshot of this day and carry it in your heart through all your less pleasant days. Stephen Covey in his masterpiece The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says we should carry our weather within us. This forecast is the kind of day you want to recall on your rainy days and Mondays.

Yesterday’s drive home took us past fields of wildflowers so lush and rich in color they were intoxicating. Steven Curtis Chapman sang Morning Has Broken on the worship playlist, the perfect accompaniment to the views of the drive.

Like the psalmist, look up. Look around. Capture all of God’s good through your senses. Store it away for a rainy day. Bundle some of it for overly hot days and much too cold days. Package it for those days when work feels way too much like work.

The sun is rising now. The birds are singing their praises and thanksgiving. It’s a good time to join them in morning song.

I will carry my weather within me.

Our Father, you are good all the time. You make all things beautiful. You give us opportunities to see the world through lenses of your abundant love. This transforms rainy days into springtime perfection. Empower us to carry within is the beauty and joy of days like this, days pointing toward that perfect day to come. Amen.

Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 8:12-18

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
