But when I turned to the east, there was a totally different look. The sky was a deep clear blue with fluffy white clouds.
The difference in the two directions represented to me the battle between good and evil that we encounter every day. Hoping that the bright pure good will withstand the threats of the dark evil and win the battle for yet another day.
As I stood and watched the darkness trying to overtake the light, the sun sprang out from behind the clouds. The dark clouds evaporated in the brightness. Good and light had won.
The day became bright and clear.
Right now, at almost 2 o'clock in the morning, it's breezy and cool outside. There's not a cloud in the sky. Every star is visible, shining brightly.
God's smile is reflected in a moon that will be full again in a few nights.
All is good. All is bright.
Dear brothers and sisters,
whenever trouble comes your way,
let it be an opportunity for joy.
For when your faith is tested,
your endurance has a chance to grow.
