A Cheerful Giver

The weather can't seem to make up its mind and i'll be honest, it's got me in a funk.  I either need it to be really warm and sunny so I can get some (much needed) vitamin D, or be a winter wonderland so I can make a snowman.  It has made me so over this month, and to make matters worse February is next week...ughh.  School is hard, nothing truly exciting is happening right now, and I think if I get any paler Casper won't even like me.  Could I be more of a Debbie Downer right now??  I'm telling you it's the season of dull that is bringing me down.  I'm going home this weekend to get a change of scenery so hopefully I will be back to my (sort of) cheery self by Monday.  Just in time for my stats test...wooo (seriously what is wrong with me!?)

It's in times like this I need to remind myself to have a cheerful heart.  2 Corinthians 9:7 says "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."  I immediately relate this verse to tithing, but I think it can also be applied to our time.  I don't think God wants us going through the motions everyday just waiting for something better to come along.  No, I believe that he wants us to rejoice and be thankful in all that we do.  Every day is a gift and we should use that to further His kingdom.  So yes January feels long, and lets be honest February will feel longer, but we have such a beautiful gift that we should be happy to share everyday.  

So if you are like me and kind of feel bleh or ugh, just remember, yes sunny days are around the corner, but today is just as beautiful because we get to be apart of the creator's incredible experiment called life.  Everyday might not feel like it, but it is an adventure.  So open your eyes and explore today's adventure.  admire the trees, smile at your neighbor, or listen to music.  Do what ever it is that helps you to open your eyes.
