I knew our January was pretty gloomy, so I wasn't surprised to read that we had 25/31 cloudy days, no sunny days and only six partly sunny days. In fact, according to the National Weather Service at Grand Rapids (Michigan), we had the second cloudiest January since 1904! (mlive.com/weather/2024)
In the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 16, there is a discussion about the weather. Jesus was being tested by religious leaders and was asked for a sign. His response?
Well, if you can read the sky, how is it you cannot read the signs of the times?
In other words, it was pretty obvious to most of us that January was super gloomy because it was really cloudy. If we can figure that out, how is it we miss so much else that's going on around us? How do we not recognize the Creator in his creation?
"For from the greatness and the beauty of created things their original author, by analogy, is seen." (Wisdom, Chapter 13, Verse 5)
