I don’t really want it to be true that something as mundane as the weather can really affect my psyche. So when I’m feeling gloomy I’m always looking for some causal factor – some “reason” why I’m in a grumpy mood – because if I find the reason maybe I can “reason” my way out of it, right?
But this morning I woke up with the sun streaming through my windows, and I leapt out of bed, bouncy and matching the bright sunny day ounce for ounce with the bright sunny spirit within me. Then I realized that the past few days of rain and overcast skies had been mirrored by my mood too. Not severely really, but just enough to notice what a joyful mood I was in today…for no reason at all other than God’s gift of a sunshiny day.
So now I’m thinking…I don’t have any homework (school break this week, yeah!), it’s Saturday, and I’m sitting here pondering all this at my computer – what am I doing here, when I could be outside enjoying this glorious day! So here I go; I’m outta here…pausing now just long enough to recommend it to you too: Go outside!!!!
