Dad! Dad! It's A Sunny Day!
If you are like me then it may take a second or two for your kids to get your attention. My son, Hunter, has gotten into the habit of saying "Dad! Dad!" a few times before I give him the attention he so desires and deserves.
For the last six years we have lived in Juneau, Alaska (and loved it!) where it seems the sun may "never shine". I believe the average amount of sunny days per year was approximately 44 days! That is not a whole lot of sun. For the first 6 weeks after we moved back to Tulia Hunter would enthusiastically say when we woke from the evening's slumber, "Dad! Dad! It's a sunny day!" He usually said this running through the house with a smile on his face. Oh the things we take for granted and forget to thank God for in our lives!
Stop and give God the glory for the "small" things in your life today.
What things have you taken for granted lately?
