The clouds are playing peek-a-boo with the sun.
Did you ever lay outside, flat on your back, and watch the clouds roll by, picking out cloud formations?
Oh, look, a rabbit!
That’s a horse!
That one looks like a Halloween Jack-o-Lantern!
Lot’s of laughter and giggles, sometime disagreements. Where I might see the Jack-o-lantern, my little brother saw a bowling ball.
It doesn’t take much to entertain children…at least back in those days.
Today, while out on my deck, the passing clouds completely blocked out the sun for a good fifteen minutes. Because there was no blue sky visible, it was hard to pick out any cloud formations at all.
In those childhood days, my young brother worried that the sun was gone! My mother patiently explained that the sun hadn’t gone anywhere, that it was still there, we just couldn’t see it.
Isn’t that like our walk with The Son? Life and ‘stuff’ get in the way sometimes and we lose sight of Him. But He’s always there, waiting for us to see Him again.
We can’t let life’s worries and distractions block our spiritual view of Him. Just knowing The Son is always there makes the next step we take easier, even during the cloudiest of days.
