No Bunnies At the Beach

This past week’s blog entries have been filled with topics inspired by being at the beach for a week.  I REALLY like the beach, even in very hot weather.  But all good things must come to an end…except heaven but that’s not the subject of this post.  I’m back home in Central PA now and I took a bike ride early this morning.  On this bike ride I estimate that I saw 6 bunny rabbits.  I also like bunny rabbits.  We have two rabbits at our house but I especially like seeing them on my bike rides.  What I was thinking about as I rode was that every place that we are, or every situation or station in life that we find ourselves, has blessings.  The beach is a great place to be but there are no bunnies at the beach.

Similar to geographic locations, we all go through different stages and phases of life.  Each stage or phase is different.  There is different “scenery” at each stage of life…but God intends us to enjoy Him in each stage of our lives.  God intends for us to glorify Him in every phase of our lives.  If we get “stuck” in one phase, refusing to move on; or if we spend too much time reliving a previous phase we can miss out on the blessings that God has for us in the phase or stage of life in which we live now.

So, there are no bunnies at the beach.  But there are bunnies in Central PA.  What are the blessings you have right now?  Even if a phase you are going through now is filled with suffering…there are blessings.  Enjoy God in those blessings.
