Nature's portals sometimes stream versus stay still.
Observing the sky over time reminds us that circumstances change like these clouds drifting south. Yes, they can cover up the sun, but the sun remains fixed.
Wait on The Lord and the sky will clear. But even when those clouds camp...
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Outward prosperity and inward peace aren't permanent, according to Matthew Henry. But how could our individual perception - even during a harsh reality - change His worthiness to be praised?
Sing praise to The Lord, you saints of His and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name...weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning...To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent, O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Psalm 30: 4,5,12
