Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)

In this new economy with its high unemployment, constricted credit and shuttered homes it’s hard to find a silver lining but I’ve seen its ragged edge beneath the clouds of this financial storm. Today’s joys lie in the simple things, like the solitude of an orange orb rising over the pines and the rhythmic breathing of an infant nuzzled against its mother’s chest. It is here, at the edge of tomorrow, that the gray day bleeds red with the promise of warmth, light and hope. Economies may crash, our faith falter, but the planet continues to spin, unfurling a new day.

How will you spend yours?...

As our economy contracts we huddle in the fetal position clutching what’s left of our savings, scared of the future, forgetting that past. We are not the first to face gray days, only the first of this century. These are the labor pains of new life. We will survive but we will never be the same. The birthing process leaves stretch marks and scars.

So how should we react to this latest storm? Here are ten facts that will not change.

1) The gulls do not store up for themselves fish and shrimp and yet they do not starve. If a bird can find food enough each day so can a man, woman and child.

2) We cannot alter the earth’s rotation or adjust the constellations in the sky and yet we live comfortably in our skin. Should the planet warm and seas rise we will adapt to our climate and move to higher ground. We always have.
