And ever it rained...

I have not much to say other than my mood is affected by the weather more than I'd like to admit. I have no good reason to complain or be moody and yet I find myself that way. In my defence, it's been raining forever. Okay, 3 or 4 days. But still. I am thankful for a great many things. I've noticed that lately, those things aren't the first things to come to my mind, nor are they the second things either. While this might not sound too out of the ordinary, I usually try to keep my blessings before me. Heavy emphasis on the try, lately though, the try is somewhat lacking.
Historically I begin reading the psalms at this point.
Psalm 34:8-10 (NIV)
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

David (the psalmist) calls to me. I'm off to seek refuge.

Ah yes the Saskatchewan fall rain...cold and wet and dank and dark and cloudy and now I'm all depressed:) I understand. Outlook has been a bit depressing in the rain as well. Good to see we can all still relive the college days even if only through a bunch of internet savvy blogging opportunities.
