All Sunshine Makes a Desert!
But hey, life needs its seasons too. Get over it when clouds form. Is this why the writer of the New Testament letter said 'in all circumstances, rejoice.'? Maybe. I have certainly known some dry and thirsty times when going nil-by-mouth for over 7 weeks last year for instance, and I want to thank God for the rain! Where we live our reservoirs are full, but they would not be for long if we always had the sunshine we crave.
And by the way - talking about the changing seasons of life - it is now 4 months since the neurostimulator was switched on in me and I have not had to go back into hospital once in that period (compared to 10 times last year). Praise God my pain is well under control, and it seems that the pancreatitis has just subsided too. So I really do welcome this new season whatever the weather!
