A sign of Spring...  
The Eastern horizon was awash with pink this morning. As I drove to work, the few scattered clouds in the sky were also painted pink. The weren't enough clouds to really make it a spectacular sunrise, but it was a sunrise!

The need for clouds to make a good sunrise got me to thinking! Watch out, this could be dangerous! I reasoned that it seems to take some kind of adversity to facilitate something of worth. It takes clouds to enhance a sunrise. Usually, it takes a rain storm to produce a rainbow. God had to wipe out the world with a flood before he created the first rainbow. As long as we trust that God is in control, we need not fear adversity, as God will produce something of value from it!

I hope everyone has a good day today. May all your adversities be small ones!

Re: awesome, gary!
I'm doing well. I can't say I'm losing a ton of weight, but there are indications that I am losing a bit! :-) I need to exercise more though.

How about you Claudia? How are you doing without a car? Can you use public transit any where you are?

glad to hear that there are indications! the exercise is the toughest part, isn't it?

as for me, here in san diego, public transit is the prime choice at the moment. :D we've got a great public transit system, and i'm really thinking about getting a bike. ~_~

That bike would sure get you the exercise. Unfortunately, I live too far from work to use one. Public transportation here in Kansas City is good as long as you are in the City proper. It's pretty spotty when you get out as far as I am, otherwise, I might use it from time to time for a break from driving.
