What if the sun didn’t come up tomorrow?

This is post #2 in series which grew out of this original post: http://lisa-grant.com/2016/11/exchanging-gripe-gratitude/

I promise, I’m not trying to be dramatic.  But seriously, how much do we take the sun for granted?  We just assume the sun will show up every morning to set the day into motion. Unless, of course, our favorite team suffers a devastating loss!

For the most part, the sun gets a bad rap.  It either doesn’t shine often enough, or it provides too much or too little heat.  Sometimes, we even gripe that it’s too bright.

Without the sun…

  • We would be living in complete darkness
  • The earth would be mega cold
  • Plants could not grow
  • No beautiful sunrises or sunsets
  • The earth, and all the other planets in our solar system, would likely go flying off into space

To translate this to everyday life:

  • Your energy bill would surpass your income
  • Hot flashes would be a luxury
  • You would never again hear, “Would you like fries with that?”
  • Instagram would be out of business
  • Buckle up, we’re in for a bumpy ride!

Therefore, take a moment today to thank God for the sun, and praise Him for all its benefits.  Just another step toward exchanging our gripes for gratitude!
