Gray Skies

I like long stretches of gray days.  When it is sunny, I feel like I should be "doing" something...something productive in the eyes of others.  But, on a gray day, I feel like I am being given permission to snuggle in, cuddle up and rest.  Gray days seem quieter and calmer...two of my favorite things.  Maybe that is why I enjoy all the shades of gray in the dawn.  It is quiet, peaceful and full of the promise of what is to come.
Gray days, too,  are full of the promise of what is to come...the sun will come out (maybe not tomorrow) again.  The trees will bud and the flowers will bloom.  It is part of God's vast eternal plan...seasons, cycles, rest and growth.  Enjoy your gray days and rest up - for the sun is coming!
