WOW! The weather the last couple days has been outstanding! Only in the Northwest do you get a thirty degree shift in weather over just a couple of days. A few days ago it was a damp 55 degrees. Today's forecast is sunny and 85. I don't mean to depress you, but they say by Sunday it's supposed to be rainy and 59 degrees. Those are some radical shifts. It hardly gives us time to haul out our shorts and t-shirts before we have to turn right around and put our jackets back on.

However, the bright side might be that we Puget Sound people are better equipped for the inconsistency and radical changes life can throw at us. Life at times seems to be able to radically change on us in a heart beat. We can seem to be humming along with our normal lives and then wham! We get a phone call with unexpected news, we go in for a routine check up and all of a sudden there is nothing routine about it, we go to work as usual expecting our normal day and leave in shock over changes we had no say in, etc. I am sure you know what I am talking about.

You might be going through one of those radical life altering moments right now. The great thing is that just as life can change suddenly in ways we don't like, they can also suddenly change in good and positive ways. Like this weather change. From damp and 55 to sunny and 85 in a matter of hours. Don't examine it. Don't worry about the forecast for days in the future, simply enjoy it now! As a matter of fact, I am going to get home as quick as I can and dig out my favorite pair of shorts and a t-shirt.

It's beautiful out. Seize it and let God worry about the forecast.

I'm in the middle of a radical change at work. An unsolicited, surprise change, with a new job and a new boss. As I start to let the enormity of the new responsibilities overwhelm me and begin feeling anxious and inadequate (almost daily), I remind myself that of all the unwelcome reorganizations and shifts that I've experienced through the years, even those that made me cry and whine (yes, like a BABY), every single one resulted in growth and an advancement in my career. Every one was a positive change. Now I even see them as "a God thing" and am embarrassed that I responded with so little faith. So I remind myself continually that God is in control and quote Romans 8:28: "...all things work together for good for those who love God..." and suddenly the forecast is sunny!
