"Blessed Be the Name"

If you've kept up with my posts, you've seen a pattern. A pattern of me being so anxious for the next few months, which promise to bring warmer weather.  This translates to me spending the summer on my parents' farm, basking in the sun's rays and enjoying the evenings sprawled out on the porch.

As I was driving on my way to my "second job" this evening, I couldn't help to think about how I longed to turn the other way and head home. There, I would crawl under the covers to rest and be sheltered from this yucky weather. While daydreaming as I sat at a traffic light, I happened to glance to the left.

This is what I saw.

You'll notice it looks like a gorgeous day in this photo.
That's because it was raining and I couldn't get a clear picture of the sign, so I found this one online.
 
For the past year, I've driven by this sign weekly, which sits atop a hill overlooking the Northeast Tennessee town of Elizabethton. Today, I noticed it for the first time.
 
I'm so glad God put this message in front of me today. I am blessed, each second of every day! I may not enjoy rain and cold, but he is in charge and makes those calls! We should all enjoy the breaths we take each day, finding beauty in God's ways.
 
I probably aggravated the drivers of the cars in the long line behind me, because my eyes were fixated on this sign long after the light turned green. And, I've been praising God's name since. I put my delicate gold cross necklace on this morning and have touched many times this evening, pausing to give praise.
 
I hope this brings those thoughts of aggravation, disappointment, or "have to's" that you may be having today back into perspective.
