Indoors/ Outdoors

This was taken of Caleb back in March here in Ohio.  He was  being good about it, but I know he would have rather been outdoors playing than inside looking out. Little boys are like that. 

Today I had to be outdoors when I would have much rather stayed  inside where it was warm and dry.
Actually there were a (very) few short times today that were close to pleasant if one was wearing a rain jacket. The sun peaked it's warm rays from behind the heavy clouds those fleeting moments.  

It is near the end of April. At this time of year, one expects spring, for some reason, but many years we are still in for some pretty unpleasant cold. Since it was so wet and  cold today, the brightly colored tulips were rolled up tight with little points at the top of each flower. I'm hoping to see them open back up tomorrow to take in the warmth of the sun.

I'm also hoping that people rise up and do something about the lax borders and an FBI and CIA that have been letting too much information go to waste. It is not enough to just know there are certain  jihadists within our borders. The individuals must be put out and kept out. If they don't like us so much that they want us dead, then let them live elsewhere.

I choose to worship the creator God who loves us and wants the best for us,  not a god filled with hatred. I choose the God who gave us the Psalms. I trust in His word.

May you be encouraged:

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.
