Appreciation and Gratitude are Magnified with Life’s Contrasts

blue sky

I drive 30 miles to and from work every weekday. During that time I am often inspired by a realization that leads to a post like this one. Well, the other afternoon that’s exactly what happened.

It had been raining for nearly five days and the rain clouds were finally breaking. I noticed to the north the clouds were gone and in their place was the most beautiful blue sky I have ever seen. Then I  pondered that thought a bit. Did it only seem like it was the most beautiful blue sky I had ever seen because I was noticing it in contrast to the rain-filled clouds? Would I have even noticed it otherwise?

Oh, God, thank you for the contrasts in my life that give me a keen awareness and keep me in gratitude as I am refined by age™ for all you have created.

Without these contrasts that provide a deeper awareness of this life and a mindset of gratitude I would truly be pathetic and blind to your love for me. I worship you with my gratitude. Amen.
